Birds and Flowers Of The Bay Trail 9/16/12

Yesterday we walked the Bay Trail starting at  Pt. Isabel and heading north for about three miles and then returning. It was mid-day so it was not especially good for birding or photography, but there were a surprising number of flowers in bloom. Most of the flowers had been planted and many were natives. Also I managed to identify a West Coast Lady Butterfly. Click read more to see species lists.
