Birding Elsie Roemer 8/16/15

Today we went to Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary in Alameda, CA to see shorebirds. Most abundant were Double-crested Cormorant, Black-bellied Plover, Marble Godwit, Sanderling and Western Sandpiper. There were also a good number of Snowy Egret and Semi-palmated Plover. Also good looks at Caspian Terns. Also a possible first year Heerman’s Gull. (left off bird list as not confident on the ID)
