Thursday Treasures ~ May 16, 2013

 
We had to be in Petaluma early this morning for an appointment. After breakfast we decided on a walk at Shollenberger Park. There's a gentle 2.2 mile loop around the marshlands and along the Petaluma River. It is a great place for a leisurely walk and bird watching.

Cinnamon Teals and Tealettes
 
Our list today included: Canadian Geese (they should be renamed Sonoma County Geese as they no longer commute), swans, egrets, redwing blackbirds, stilts, avocets, mallards, cinnamon teals, northern shovelers, white pelicans, bank swallows and greenback swallows.
