Birding And Flowers Along The Richmond Bay Trail

Today we went birding on the Richmond section of the Bay Trail between Pt. Isabel and Shimada Friendship Park. The highlight of the day was seeing a flock of Cedar Waxwings as we have never seen them along the Bay Trail. The Waxwings were particularly interested in the berries near Harbor Village. We was able to identify thirty-eight different birds but the Scaup, Wigeons and Dowitchers were not possible to get to species. Also a few other birds got away without an ID.

Flower bloom is increasing. Natives included California Poppies, Salvias, Yarrow and Lupine. Exotics included Pride-of Medeira, Red Hot Pokers, and unfortunately too much ice plant.
