We spent 4 days at the Black Heron Inn so we could explore the wildlife of the nearby Point Reyes area - sure there was plenty of birds moving through on migration and we saw the start of the Grey Whale movement as well as the odd Racoon and Tule Elk as well as Californian Sealions and Elephant Seals. To be fair however the countryside around The Black Heron Inn was just as rich in wildlife ... particularly birds. From Green Herons to Wild Turkeys viewable from the veranda to the colony of Dark crowned Night Herons at the end of the drive.
Stay here ... keep your eyes open and you will not be disappointed.
