Birding Emeryville Shoreline for World Shorebird Day

Willets and Marbled Godwits at Emeryville Shoreline

Today I went birding at the Emeryville shoreline. Our observations were included in the Global Shorebird Counting Program which is part of World Shorebird Day. Included were Emeryville Crescent State Marine Reserve and Emeryville Park and Marina, which are all part of Eastshore State Park . Weather was sunny, hazy and unusually hot for this location. 78 F to start and 95 F at finish. We saw 25 species in all.
