National Wildlife Refuge, Alviso Slough Trail

National Wildlife Refuge, Alviso Slough Trail


On Saturday D. and I went to the National Wildlife Refuge in Alviso.  I took a little walk on the Alviso Slough Trail in the southwest part of the refuge; here's part 1 of the pics I took (part 2 here).


Milk thistle in bloom.





Little sandpipers known as peeps run along the edge of a salt pond.





A willet forages in the salt pond.





A ladybug and a tiny brine fly take a rest on a large chunk of driftwood.





Two views of salt pond A12.







Canada goose.





American avocet.





The Alviso Slough Trail follows a levee separating salt evaporation ponds.





Black-necked stilts forage in the ponds.








Part 2 here.
