Bittersweet birding at Coyote Point (San Mateo)

Saturday was the second-to-last field trip w/my Field Ornithology class before the semester ends in December, and it was a good one.  I’d never birded Coyote Point before, despite driving by it hundreds of times on the way home from the office, and I was looking forward to exploring a new area along the bay.  After a very confusing drive in (road construction near Coyote Point has made it nearly impossible to find if you don’t know where you’re going!), our group met up and headed out at 9am under threatening skies.
