East Bay Shorebirds 10/29/16

Today we went birding at the Emeryville Shoreline and Elsie Romer Bird Sanctuary mainly to see shorebirds.

Along the Emeryville Shoreline next to the road there were hundreds of Willets and Dunlin along with a large number of Marbled Godwits. There were also some Black Turnstones and Whimbrels mixed in. Only had nine species as just stayed along area by road.

At Elsie Roemer the Willets, Marbled Godwits, and Dowitchers were most abundant. We saw a total of 19 species.
