9/17/21: Continuing Pacific Golden-plover at Hayward Shoreline, Frank’s Dump
Friday, 9/17/21: The Pacific Golden-plover continues with the Black-bellied Plover flock at Frank’s Dump’s mostly dry salt pond. High tide was at 10:38 AM. Groups of plovers flew around and landed at Frank’s Dump around 9:45 AM. The Pacific Golden-plover was among them as were two Ruddy Turnstones. A Caspian Tern joined the flock briefly. When the sun came out the Pacific Golden-plover shone more golden.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I met Ron and Nancy Overholtz at the W. Winton entrance at 7:30 AM and we walked out on the paved SF Bay trail under cloudy skies. The Hayward Landing water’s edge was busy with foraging shorebirds: many Willets, some Marbled Godwits and Long-billed Curlews… farther north, many Black-bellied Plovers foraged. Waves of Least Sandpipers and Western Sandpipers flew in, landed or moved farther south. Two Snowy Plovers were on the beach- always a delight!
