PT REYES BIRD FEST–OLEMA MARSH TO BEAR VALLEY

We had a still, warm,sunny morning for our walk.  Except for some car noise, it was a perfect morning for listening to the birdsong.  We managed to get looks at most of the skulkers: Wrentit pair, Pac-slope Flycatcher, Warbling Vireo, Wilson’s Warbler. Only surprise was a migrating Rufous Hummer.
