Default Mt. Burdell

Today I was at Mt. Burdell Open Space Preserve which is in Novato in Marin County CA. looking for early season wildflowers. We were in the southern part of the park, which consists of Grasslands, Oak woodlands and Serpentine rocky outcrops. It was a bright sunny and breezy day so it was not particularly good for photography. I did get one fair photo of California Poppies and another one of the Oak Trees.

The most abundant flowers were the Blue Dicks and California Buttercups. The most interesting area botanically was the serpentine area that included California Poppy, Cream Cups and Tidy-tips. The best birding areas were the large old twisting oaks. Here I found many Yellow-rumped Warbler and Acorn Woodpeckers. Other birds of note were the Western Bluebirds. The birding was often by ear, at least the initial identification.

I posted a couple of photos and bird and flower lists at:
