Cook’s Landing and Murray Park 5/31/2009

I went to Cook’s Landing this morning and when I found the River Trail and Pfeifer Loop Trail both still closed due to water I decided to cross the Big Dam Bridge to bird Murray Park a bit. In all I was there about 2.5 hours and walked about 5.6 miles. It was a beautiful sunny day and I got some good pictures of a Least Tern and an Orchard Oriole.

Later in the day, I returned to the River Trail, between Cook’s Landing and Burns Park to look for a Painted Bunting reported by Craig Provost. I found right where Craig saw him the day before.
