Sami LaRocca, Pam Pappone, Joe, Clemens, John Mott-Smith, and Chris Dunford started at Tides Wharf and drove Doran Park where we spend two hours at the Rich Stallcup observation deck and the adjacent ocean beach. Then we birded Spud Point Marina, Bodega Head (separate checklist), Porto Bodega, Owl Canyon (separate checklist), back to Doran Park to observe the entry pond and the jetties, and finally to Lucas Wharf. Partly cloudy, some light fog, moderate wind, temp in 60s F.
