Birding Heron’s Head 1/11/20

Rock Sandpiper

Today I went birding at Heron’s Head Park in San Francisco with several people from my Masterbirders’ program and friends. The highlight of the day was seeing a Rock Sandpiper, which is a new life bird for me. We identified 55 species. Our goal had been to get more than 53 species as a friend had seen 53 species yesterday.
