Birding Hayward Regional Shoreline 8/19/18

Today I went birding with several other members from the Audubon Masterbirding Program at the Hayward Regional Shoreline. Most abundant were American Avocet, Marbled Godwits, Willets, Brown Pelicans, and Western Sandpipers. Highlights included the large numbers of the above species, observing White-tailed Kites hovering and hunting, seeing a few Black-bellied Plovers still showing their breeding colors and watching the Pelicans and Hawks in flight. As a group we had 32 species (+4 other taxa).
