POINT REYES GALLERY

My species count for the Point Reyes Bird Festival was only 88, but then I spent considerable time at the booth for our PIB Bird Tour Company.  There were many active songbirds newly arrived and singing, and some lingering species that are considered “wintering” birds.  Here are some more pics.

Chestnut-backed Chickadee pretending to be a leafbird in the willow.

Just two of the thousands of Greater Scaup on Tomales Bay.

Caspian Tern fly-by off Limantour Beach.

Eurasian Collared-Dove, now abundant in many locales along the California and Oregon Coast.  Was not seen in the U.S. before it appeared in Florida less than thirty years ago!

Osprey in flight.  And then Osprey on nest overlooking Limantour Road.
