Comments:
This was a small group primarily from the Central Valley led by David Yee to explore shoreline habitats. The morning was pleasantly warm, with a slight breeze. Note counts were impacted by individuals climbing out to large rock outcroppings, displacing resting birds who flew further from shore to more isolated locations.
