Default Many Wildflowers Blooming At Abbott's Lagoon, Pt. Reyes

We hiked out to the lagoon, went over the bridge, hiked around the dunes and then went up to the bluff just before the bridge and continued a short distance along the fence and found many species of wildflowers in bloom today. Most plentiful were Marsh Hedge Nettle, Yarrow, California Poppies ( smaller this time of year and the very yellow coastal form), Yellow Sand-verbena and Gum Plant.

Twenty-one birds were identified. Most interesting were the White Pelicans flying back and forth, two Northern Harriers interacting and the many White-crowned Sparrows singing (to establish their territory I am guessing).

Butterflies and Dragonflies were also active. Butterflies identified were Mylitta Crescent, Coronis Fritillary, Cabbage White, either a West Coast or Painted Lady, and a dark Checkerspot. Also seen were Black-tailed deer. There were also reports of otters, which we did not see.

To see photos, a detailed plant list and bird list go to: Abbott's Lagoon 7/5/14
