Birding Eastshore State Park 5/15/15

Today we went birding in the Berkeley section of the  McLaughlin Eastshore SP in the area between Gilman St. and University Av. It was low tide. We walked about 2.5 miles
from Gilman Street to Sea Breeze through and around Berkeley Meadow and along Virginia Annex. Some of the seasonal ponds in Berkeley Meadow still have water in them although there were only a few birds in them. We identified 26 species today. Click read more to see bird list.
