Birding Emeryville Shoreline 10/22/17 – updated

We went birding at the Emeryville Shoreline today. It was high tide and the shorebirds were roosting on the rocky shoreline next to the road.  There were very large numbers of Marbled Godwits and Willet with some Whimbrel, Western Sandpipers, Black Turnstone, Surfbird and Dunlin mixed in. It was the first Surfbird I have seen in a few years and would have missed the ID if I had not shown a picture to Rusty Scalf from Golden Gate Audubon. We identified 29 species. Also seen were Painted Lady and Monarch Butterflies and a Harbor Seal. Native Plants in bloom, most likely planted, were Gum Plant, Ceanothus and Zauschneria.
