Birding Emeryville Shoreline 1/22/16

Emeryville Shoreline

Emeryville Shoreline

Today we went birding during the 6.6. high tide at the Emeryville shoreline–near fire station. It was rainy part of the time and we only lasted 40 minutes. There were easily well over a thousand shorebirds on the rocks right next to the sidewalk on the south side of road. There were  large numbers of Western Sandpipers, Dunlin, Marbled Godwit and Willets. Also seen were a number of Black Turnstone. Only one each of Sanderling, Black-bellied Plover and American Avocet. Out in the Bay we saw Bufflehead, Ruddy Ducks and One Western Grebe.
