Walking around Lake Cleone

Last evening we camped at the Mac Kerricher State Park campground three miles north of Fort Bragg. Just a quick little overnight camp-out with our friends Ed and Suzanne in our two Vanagon campers.

In the evening after our barbequed chicken dinner, sitting around the campfire, the local camp robber showed up and ran off with the chicken bones.

But now we get to the walking part. Our friends are "birders" so this morning we got up early and walked the .628 mile trail around Lake Cleone. Here is the list of what we saw:
Brown Pelican
Heerman’s Gull
Greater Scaup
Ring Neck Duck
Wood Duck (beautiful)
American Coot
American Widgeon
Greater White Fronted Geese
Ruddy Duck
Pie-billed Grebe
Eared Grebe
Black Phoebe
Fox Sparrow
Winter Wren
Acorn Woodpeckers
Yellow Rump Warblers
Some kind of Flycatcher
Stellar Jays
Song Spparrows
Northern Flicker
