Nineteen people went to Elkhorn Slough National Research Reserve with Gary and Terry Holmquist today. Starting from the Visitor Center we hiked north toward the Hummingbird Island passing the old, abandoned barn. Then we hiked to the North Marsh Overlook before turning back to the Visitor Center, about 3-4 miles. Around the marshes we saw lots of small and big sandpipers, a curlew and some godwits. While at the Hummingbird Island, we saw lots of white Pelicans in the water. On our way to Hummingbird Island ( didn't see any hummingbirds there ) we saw this wall made of sea shells and burnt wood. We had lunch at Phil's Fish House in Moss Landing which is a very famous and large restaurant. The portions were really big there and some of us had to take doggy bags home.
