This was my first visit to Hayward Shoreline. Since I'd become obsessed with birds at DelValle and Shadow Cliffs, I decided to branch out. I'd heard there was a variety of shorebirds at Hayward Shoreline, so I headed over there one fine morning. The variety of birds was astonishing. From Canada Geese, to Red-winged Blackbirds, Avocets, Stilts, Dowitchers, Mallard and Shoveler Ducks, Caspian Terns and a Snowy Egret, I was busy capturing them all. Our friend the Grey Squirrel was there too. The San Mateo-Hayward Bridge is quite a sight also.
