Birding Lake Cleone

Today we continued our travels south, leaving Hwy 101 at Liggett and climbing over the infamous Liggett Hill and down to join Hwy 1 and wind along the California Coast.  We are now setup at MacKerricher State Park, just north of the town of Fort Bragg for two nights. This is a most impressive park with many recreational options in an outstanding natural setting of ocean, beaches, a lake, and trails, and most important to us, there are lots of birds.  We spent the first couple hours just identifying the birds we could hear and see from our campsite.  But eventually Buster wanted more so we set out on a walk around Lake Cleone and discovered even more, giving us a total bird count for the afternoon of 42 different species.
