REST STOPS CAN BE BEST STOPS

Heading north from the Bay Area today I hit my two favorite birding spots that are rest stops:  Maxwell northbound and the bi-directional stop on the Klamath River, Collier Rest Area.  Unphotographed was the northbound flock of Vaux’s Swifts passing over Collier about 5:30 pm. Here are some of the results of those two rest stoppings.
