Re: Eared Grebes up close at Coyote Hills Regional Park
After reading Larry's report yesterday (10/29), I went to No Name Trail and stayed there from 3:30-5:20PM.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I did find several Eared Grebes (in basic plumage http://www.flickr.com/photos/jerryting/8137148504/in/photostream) in the area but no signs of the Semipalmated Sandpiper neither the Elegant Tern.
I did find a single HY Western Sandpiper feeding on the shore along with a group of Least Sandpipers:
A group of 15+ Dunlins also mixed with the Least Sandpipers:
Other noticables in the area include 20+ American Pipit foraging on the levee just passed the 'Restricted Area' sign and a flew by Brown Pelican.
There were also 2 White-tailed Kites in South Marsh, a Cooper's Hawk on Sycamore Tree right beside the Bayview Trail at Glenn Dairy, and a Sharp-shinned Hawk on the hill side of Quarry Parking area.
