Winter Hike at Coyote Hills

The winter tour of local hiking spots hits Coyote Hills. All the wacky ducks continue to pass through, with this year including first ever sightings of wood ducks and (unpictured) canvasbacks. And a first ever sighting of white-faced ibis which seem to have strayed a bit from their typical wintering range.
