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.
