Birding Eastshore State Park In Berkeley For World Shorebird Day

I was out birding today again for the Global Shorebird Counting Program which is part of World Shorebird Day. Today was McLaughlin Eastshore State Park in Berkeley, which included North Cove, Berkeley Meadow, Sea Breeze and Virginia Annex. It was a hazy sunny day with temperatures 74 F at start, 80 F at end. We started at Gilman walked to Sea breeze, north on shoreline by University Av. to end of Meadow, along west side of Meadow, Virginia Annex and back to Gilman. Observers Clayton Anderson and Sandy Steinman. We saw 24 different species. Most unusual for this are was a Western Wood-Peewee in the Berkeley Meadow. We found Spotted Sandpipers, Black Oystercatchers and Black Turnstones, which were absent yesterday in Emeryville.
