    A trio of these birds were bathing and preening together. I really liked the color of the water in the bay on this day.

    This is only the 3rd time I've seen oystercatchers and the first time at this particular spot. I have a close-up of the OC that I'll post later.

    Lots of birds foraging in the kelp. Sanderlings, turnstones, godwits, gulls, crows, a black phoebe and even a grackle. This is a great briding spot if anyone makes it out this way.
