Pt. Reyes Lichens, Birds and Photos – updated

Updated – one more bird identified

Pt. Reyes is well-known for its birds, flowers, and Tule Elk but today our goal was to look at and photograph lichens. Inspired by Stephen Sharnoff’s new book A Field Guide to California Lichens with its excellent photos we explored areas of Pt. Reyes we remembered as having good lichens.

Although not a priority today we did manage to also identify 33 bird species along the way. ( one more at home looking at the photos. There are two female Surf Scoters in the large group of Greater Scaup.) See list at Pt. Reyes Bird List 11/17/14  Also seen were Tule Elk and many deer along Pierce Point Rd.
