In spite of the fact that it was a Hunting Day (Wed, Sat, and Sun in Santa Clara County?) I thought I'd check if there was anything different along the Bay Trail. There wasn't. At about 9 I was along the triangle area when I saw a flock of Least Sandpipers making a number of flights to feed on that barren flat. Then I noticed that when they flew from one area, a half-dozen birds remained. So I walked further, to about the center of the northern side of the triangle, and looked part way out to the south. Sure enough, there were 9 Snowy Plovers sitting there.
I went further east about another half-mile and saw a large number of hiding water-fowl, and 6 Forster's Terns that hadn't migrated to the south, but nothing different. I did register 48 species.
