Birding Emeryville Shoreline 9/25/18

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 along the shoreline right next to the road. Across the way we saw Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret and a juvenile Black-crowned night Heron.  We saw 22 species.
