I went to the Bay Trail Parking that I showed yesterday, and this time carried the Questar down to the spillway. But I didn't find the 2 species that I was looking for: Elegant Tern and Brown Pelican. Both of these species are described by Pete Dunne as having the non-successful-breeders do a dispersal to the north. I'd seen them here in the past as early as July. What I did see was a Harbor Seal. It stayed mostly underwater as it swam away, and only partly got its head up, as if it was still looking down.
I then went to A2E where I was told that I had just missed a large flock of Brown Pelicans flying west. What I did see was that notorious Northern Red Bishop on my way out by the pump-house. See photo.
