S & I did some mid-day birding around Pillar Point in Princeton-by-the-Sea today. Due to the noon hour there wasn’t a whole lot afoot, but we got good looks at flocks of Sanderlings and Black Turnstones.
Yeah so I need to get to other birding locales more often…. Not too much afoot at the baylands today, mostly the usual waders. There were a couple of female NORTHERN SHOVELERS in the slough, but I didn’t see any males.

I dropped by the baylands on the way home for a couple of hours to see what was afoot, or awing as it were. Nothing too exciting, but lots of the usual variety, and myriad egret chicks.
