The Coast Starlight  (Los Angeles-Portland-Seattle) travels past the 42-acre Andree Clark Bird Refuge in Santa Barbara, Calif., depicted on the front of this postcard. The saltwater marsh is home to a variety of migratory and resident birds including California Gulls and Black-Crowned Night Herons. The bi-level Superliner cars wear the Phase III livery introduced in 1979.

According to the back of the card, it was provided as a complimentary gift to sleeping car passengers.
