Yolo Basin Notes Jan 5, 2014

Another good outing at Yolo Basin Wetlands today.

Went this AM around 11 or so.  Spent about two hours there, driving around, hiking and birdwatching.  Here are some of the pics I took while there.

Interesting scene here – a Northern Harrier was chasing an American Bittern that had a crawfish in its mouth.

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
