Birding Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary 11/23/19

Yesterday I was birding at Elsie Roemer with friends. Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary is at the east end of Marsh Beach in the town of Alameda. It is one of the best places to see large numbers of shorebirds. We saw 32 species today. There were very large numbers of shorebirds today. Of note was we saw a Say’s Phoebe, a bird I haven’t usually seen there, the large number of Killdeer and not seeing any Semi-palmated Plovers.
