Birding Eastshore State Park 12/11/16

Yesterday I went birding in Eastshore State Park in Berkeley. I walked from Gilman Street to the  Sea Breeze Market through the Berkeley Meadow and back. I identified 41 species. Only one small seasonal pond was found in the Berkeley Meadow and it had two Mallards in it. There were many sparrows in the Meadow where I found five sparrow species as well as California Towhee. Most interesting bird was a Lincoln Sparrow. The Mudflats at the Sea Breeze were very active with shorebirds, gulls, both egrets and a Great Blue Heron.
