On a sunny morning in San Francisco, Pamelia and I trekked to the California Academy of Sciences, a newly redesigned science and natural history museum in Golden Gate Park. The building itself is beautiful and airy. It includes an aquarium and a dome-enclosed, muliti-level rainforest habitat in which birds and butterflies flutter about freely. A few more shots from the day:
We're off now to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, down toward San Jose. The San Francisco Bay is an immensely important water resource for migrating birds, and we're hoping to see plenty.
