Comments:
Beautiful day at Bodega Bay with clear skies, upper 60's to mid 70's F, and calm in morning giving way to light winds in the afternoon. Sacramento Audubon field trip led by John York. Coverage began at the Tides, then Owl Canyon, Bodega Head, Campbell Cove, and Doran Beach County Park. Very enjoyable field trip followed by dining at the Pub Republic in Petaluma.

Nice spot by Susan Scott! This bird was working the wrack line on a sandy shore; not on a rocky substrate.
