A Bewick’s wren sings a melodious song near Oso Flaco Lake at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area on a recent April day.

The wildlife area is home to more than 200 species of bird.

Winter storms have helped refill the lake, and a low-pressure system expected to move over the Central Coast later this week could bring a bit more rain.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on this stroll along Oso Flaco Lake in Guadalupe. The boardwalk at Oso Flaco, which means "skinny bear," leads to the beach.
