While much of the world is looking at Fall Foliage, I opted for another walk on the Bay Trail. I started at Pt Isabel and went out about two miles to Shimada Park and back. I only took a small compact camera today as I decided to bring a scope. Certainly got better looks at some of the birds and managed to identify 33 species. I only took a few pictures but some of them weren’t too bad. Still plenty of flowers in bloom along the trail, many planted. The most impressive were the Gumplant and Zauschneria. Anise Swallowtails, Monarchs and Cabbage White Butterflies were also seen.
