Yesterday I took a drive to San Pablo Bay, the uppermost portion of the San Francisco Bay. There, wildlife refuges protect the shallow tidal flats and I thought I might get some shorebirds to photograph. Only I didn't take in to account for the tide as everything was flooded and no birds were to be seen. Oh well, lesson learned so I explored around anyway. Above is standing beneath Highway 37. Kind of neat with the sounds of cars and big rig trucks rolling by just feet above your head.
All that traffic roaring by didn't bother this fellow, but as soon as I silently walked by off he flew.
