Cook’s Landing 9/3/2010

I birded Cook’s Landing Friday morning.  The temperature was very nice.  One of the first birds I saw was a single Caspian Tern working the backwater. Later I saw him flying up and down the river downstream from the dam.  Inside Pfeifer Loop trail, I encountered two House Wrens (a year bird for me).  Nothing else notable was seen.

Here are some pictures of the tern. I hope you like them.
