Stevens Creek at Shoreline


On Saturday D. and I took a little walk along the Stevens Creek Trail at Shoreline Park here in town.  This little walk exhausted me, but I did take some pics before I had to turn around and come home.


Stevens Creek.





Flowers at the trailhead.









A great egret flies overhead.





Pretty yellow fleurs.





The view of the mountains across the bay, and the salt pond next to the trail.







Another look at Stevens Creek, and a ruddy duck in the creek.







Behind us, the hangars at Moffett Field.





A Forster's tern perches on a rusty pipe sticking out of a salt pond.





Another Forster's tern hovers over the pond looking for a fish to eat.





A great egret stalks the salt pond looking for lunch.





A great blue heron checks out Stevens Creek.





A while pelican finds a fish in the salt pond.  It's unusual to see one here this early in the year.





A mallard hen swims up Stevens Creek.





Power lines stride along the creek toward San Francisco Bay.
