Birding Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary 9/9/17

 

Brown Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants

Today I went birding at Elsie Roemer starting about a little over an hour past high tide. Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary is at the east end of Marsh Beach in the town of Alameda. It harbors aquatic birds and other salt marsh creatures.

Black-bellied Plovers

 

There were large numbers of Black-bellied Plovers and Sanderlings today. There was also a lot of Brown Pelican action. We saw 19 different species today.
