Coyote Creek Lagoon

Coyote Creek Lagoon

On Saturday D. and I returned to the National Wildlife Refuge's Coyote Creek Lagoon to see more of it.  Here are some of the pics I took.

A view at the north end of the trail.

A least sandpiper pokes around at the edge of the water.

A snowy egret sits on one leg.

Power lines stride through the marsh.

A channel leading toward San Francisco Bay.

Gumplant is abundant in the marsh.

Different kinds of lichen grow on wooden railing.

A rickety boardwalk, nearly overgrown with marsh plants, follows the power lines to allow maintenance crews to access the towers.

A look across the marsh.

A northern shoveler paddles in the water.

Looking north as the tide goes out.

A red-tailed hawk perched on a high tension tower glares at a crow harassing it from nearby.
