Albany Mudflats Birds and Photos 12/29/14

Many waterbirds and shorebirds are found at the Albany Mudflats Ecological Preserve.  It is 160 acres of tidal mudflats with a narrow band of salt marsh, pickleweed, cordgrass vegetation for shorebirds and waterfowl. Large numbers of shorebirds, herons, egrets, feed on the mudflats at ebb tide while diving and dabbling ducks, gulls and terns forage at flood tide. I was between tides today.

The highlights were seeing a Say’s Phoebe, a bird I haven’t seen in a while, Canvasbacks and Gadwalls, who I haven’t seen many of this year, close-up looks at Anna’s Hummingbirds, and watching Avocet feeding. I identified 29 species in all. Albany Mudflats Bird List 12/29/14.
