A lot more small trees here. Around the Sanctuary there are several small parking lots to give hikers or walkers very good access. This place is put together pretty good for the locals. Saw more birds and dogs today in a long, long time. I saw the biggest flock of shorebirds on the wing than I've seen in 30 years. A very healthy population here...

Ducks, ducks,ducks.....everywhere ducks and beautiful views of Humboldt bay including the Samoa Bridge. Easy walk most can do and enjoy. Beautiful day on the bay with a few kayakers on the outside in the bay. There is a boat launch here as well.

Did several trails here in Arcata Marsh and enjoyed then all. No less than a dozen different kinds of birds including hawks. With all the ducks here i was surprised i didn't see an eagle. Beautiful day!

Saw Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary on a map and decided to explore. An absolute great place for birders. So many shorebirds and ducks. A lot of people use these trails and walk their dogs.
