Seeing Mark Holmgren’s list from this location, I was inspired to have a look. Marilyn Harding was with me. The large shorebirds are there! We had 40 Long-billed Curlews, a smattering of Willets, some Whimbrels. I include my list, which was interrupted when a traffic officer started to check cars for permits. I think if you go earlier, you won’t be fined, but around 11 a.m., she’s out giving tickets.
There’s a big lagoon down there now, and you can count birds by walking up onto the sand berm (right next to the skate board park).
Noted 25 summering Black Skimmers.
