Subject: [pen-bird] Foster City Shell Bar (25 Oct) - skimmers and shorebirds
Hi all,


I spent some time at the Foster City Shell Bar this morning on an ebbing tide. I was surprised to find a total of seventy-eight (78) BLACK SKIMMERS lined up along the shore, with a significant minority (20?) being young birds. I also found 95 RED KNOTS, 6 RUDDY TURNSTONES, and 4 SNOWY PLOVERS, among a total of thirteen shorebird species. More details and some photos in my eBird checklist here:

Good birding!
