Baylands Nature Preserve

Jen and I have been looking for outdoorsy places to visit; a few weeks ago I came across the Baylands Nature Preserve. It’s only a 5.5 mile bike ride from our place in Menlo Park. Today I went in between rainstorms. The marshlands are full of birds; next time I’m definitely bringing a pair of binoculars along with me.

On one of the pond shores, two groups of birds (one brown, one white) would suddenly take to the air every few minutes. Nature fans should have a look at these in high-res: 1, 2 (you can see why they were flying if you look on the right side of the image), 3.

Oh, and there was a rainbow too.
