Ashland to Point Reyes

Six hours on the road this afternoon and evening.  Two Lewis’s Woodpeckers at Collier Rest Stop on I-5 along the Klamath River.  Numerous Western Kingbirds along I-5 in grassy spots.  The summer Cliff Swallow colonies are once again in their nesting sites under bridges and overpasses.  Near Nicasio Reservoir in Marin County I saw my first Ash-throated Flycatcher of the spring.  Near where I’m staying in Pt. Reyes Station there are four non-breeding White Pelicans fishing in the shallow salt pond.  Numerous dabbling ducks that have not yet migrated out: Gadwall, Pintail, GW Teal, Wigeon and Shoveler.

This weekend: the first ever Point Reyes Birding Festival.
