Our delightful and knowledgeable docent was Joyce Cory , who has thirteen years of experience in the area.
The Labor Day weekend group consisted of about 15 people, including a well-behaved group of young men from the nearby Camp San Luis, escorted by two military personnel.
Along the way, in addition to identifying many birds, we observed interesting rock formations at the bluffs , and plant life, like this Locoweed (or Rattleweed) . and this Blue Elderberry shrub .
Birder Gerry Montgomery and her friend Mary (new to the area) (shown right to left) , thoroughly enjoyed the outing, as did the entire group.ody>
