Yesterday I did a walking big day as part of the Point Reyes Birding Festival. A group of fifteen led by Dave Wimpfheimer a very knowledgeable and experienced birder and trip leader walked eleven miles. The walk went through wetland, oak and fir forest, grassland and riparian habitats. We walked from the ocean at Limantour Beach, up and over Inverness Ridge to Giacomini wetlands and Olema Marsh. The group as a whole saw or heard a total of 103 different species. My personal highlight was seeing a Red Knot, which was a new bird for me.
