Alameda Creek Trail


On Saturday D. and I took a little walk on the Alameda Creek Trail, and here are some of the pics I took.


A white-tailed kite rests on a tree limb.





Former ranch land, now county property, next to the trail.





Coyote brush floof glows in the afternoon sunlight.





The plumage of an Anna's hummingbird is iridescent green.





A Nuttall's woodpecker looks for grubs and other bugs in the crevices of a tree trunk.





A pair of red-tailed hawks surveys the landscape from atop a high-tension power line.





The view across Alameda Creek into Coyote Hills Regional Park.





Power lines stride south.





A Jack Russell terrier enjoys a walk on the trail.





Some trees are starting to bud already.





A rusty barbed wire fencing label gleams in the afternoon light.





This buckeye bud looks like the head of some mythical beast (a Norse dragon, perhaps).





A turkey vulture soars over the creek.





A flood control channel of Alameda Creek.





Another Anna's hummingbird.





Cattle graze in a pasture next to the trail.
