Hayward Shoreline 2020
This is another excellent place for water birds. It is on the shore of the San Francisco Bay, right off the San Mateo Bridge (pictured in this collection). The sun was harsh. I didn't get there early enough. So, I had a lot of glare issues. There weren't as many birds as I expected, so some must be seasonal or don't show until later in the day??? There are Sand Pipers, Sage Sparrows (or song sparrows), Gulls, Avocets, and Stilts in this collection. I expected to see A ton of terns and some Godwits too. The Stilt and Gull images didn't come out shooting into the sun. In the middle of this set, there are some images of a raptor in flight. I believe it was a Marsh Hawk, but it would be way north of its usual habitat if it is one. Regardless, the Avocets were having no part of his company. They shot right up to chase it off.
