To add to Ryan's tally from closer to 11 AM on the trail between
Shoreline lake and Coast Casey then turning left around Coast Casey :

-6 /*Elegant terns */seen on the A1 posts near the hunter's entrance

- a good 50 /*White pelicans*/ on the hunters' road far toward the North

-two large flocks( around 60 total) of /*brown pelicans*/ flying from
the lake to the Slough- they may have landed far on the slough,  need to
check my distant photos for an ID

-4 of the /*Black skimmers*/ flew from the lake to the slough

-1 /*Common gallinule */ in Coast Casey marsh

-1 /*Sora */in  Coast Casey marsh

-1 /*green heron*/ on the NW dock of the lake

-1 /*Lesser yellowlegs*/ on the South pond of Coast Casey (seen before
getting on the above mentioned route)
