Birding Eastshore State Park – Berkeley 3/19/17

Today we went birding at McLaughlin Eastshore State Park in Berkeley, CA. We started by Sea Breeze Cove, went through the Berkeley Meadow and observed the North Cove.  It was low tide and the mudflats in Sea Breeze Cove were very exposed and attractive to shorebirds but much less so to waterbirds. We identified 38 bird species. The seasonal ponds in the meadow continue to be large and had a number of species of waterbirds. Best bird of the day was the Kingfisher on the wires along Virginia Annex.
