Birding Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary 1/7/20

On January 7 I went birding at Elsie Roemer.  Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary is at the east end of Marsh Beach in the town of Alameda. It harbors aquatic birds and other salt marsh creatures. It was as the high tide was going out. There were very large numbers of shorebirds, which is what makes this one of the Bay Area’s top shorebird areas. We saw 29 different species.
