Cook’s Landing (Pfeifer Loop Trail) 11/27/2008

I decided to walk the entire loop this morning while the turkey was cooking. I arrived at 8:15 and walked clockwise around taking about 2:10 to complete the 1.8 mile loop. I saw my first of season Cedar Waxwings, Purple Finch, and Brown Creeper. In all, I identified 27 species. The trail offers a nice alternative to the more populated paved trails at the landing.
Species seen or heard:
• Pied-billed Grebe
