Within an hours drive north of San Francisco is the Point Reyes National Seashore, a fascinating place to spend some time. The Point Reyes Peninsula is separated from the rest of mainland California by the San Andrea Fault and there are places where you can see this directly as the ground has shifted in the past.

The visitor center has a trail that passes through open woodland where you can expect to see Nuttall’s and Acorn Woodpeckers, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Song and Savannah Sparrow, Bushtit, Spotted and California Towhees, Pacific Slope Flycatcher, and the Red-shafted form of the Northern Flicker. The California Quail is easily seen.

While driving through the campground this Bobcat made an appearance.

The road down to the lighthouse passes by some working ranches and you may see Red-shouldered Hawk, Western Meadowlark, Brewer’s Blackbird, and White-crowned Sparrow.
