Start and End Point: Pelican Way, end of cul-de-sac, near 150 Pelican Way, San Rafael, CA

Lots of bird life by Shoreline Park. Acacia trees were in full bloom (see image).

I stopped and took pictures of a sunset over a lagoon/pond (pictured), while a cormorant swam around and dined on several little fish. This was the first time I used my iPhone to try to record some sounds of the Bay. Other than picking up some wind noise, when I was trying to record the red-winged blackbirds, it worked surprisingly well. (Unfortunately, this audio memo file format doesn't upload right now.)

39 ducks; 7 little brown jobs (LBJs); 4 sea gulls; 15 American avocets; 3 black-necked stilts; 1 great blue heron; 9 unidentified brownish shorebirds; 2 great egrets; 1 coot; 1 snowy egret; 2 crows; 1 Western grebe; 1 hummingbird; 2 red-winged blackbirds; 1 cormorant; 3 doves; and a cloud of gnats
