A brief birdwatching trip to the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve showed a good variety of birds. Song Sparrows were everywhere and made their presence known. The Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center was built to house exhibits but the area under the roof was covered with cliff swallow nests. The only disappointment was that I didn't see the rare clapper rail, but the tides and time of year weren't ideal. I may be back next winter.
