I made a midday dash to the Alviso EEC yesterday on my way home from a class field trip. As I arrived, an adult BALD EAGLE flew over the New Chicago Marsh and salt pond A16 before continuing north. It managed to completely flush all the Shorebirds and Gulls I had hoped to scan through... After some time, they settled down again I got great looks at a nice variety of Gulls. Nothing unexpected, but huge numbers of HERRING GULLS, a very nice group of THAYER'S GULLS, GLAUCOUS-WINGED, WESTERN, CALIFORNIA and RING-BILLED GULLS.
