I followed a similar path to Garrett this morning. Starting at the kite flying area of Shoreline Park, I saw 3 Burrowing Owls in their area. The Northern Red Bishop showed after a while near the Pump Station.
Walking round to Pond A2E I also saw a good number of Least Tern; I counted 16, both adult and juvenile.
Whilst walking toward the Shoreline Lake I had a very flighty Western Meadowlark and a Western Grebe.
At the lake there wasn’t anything unusual. The long staying Goldeneye was present, along with other usual suspects.
Nice morning of birding; the shoreline park car park was very busy as I left at about 11:45am.
