Baird’s Sandpiper at Elsie Roemer, Alameda

Teri L Wills

We went to see shorebirds this morning at Elsie Roemer Sanctuary in Alameda. Before high tide at 11:30 am, we found a Baird’s Sandpiper foraging along shore, at the water line to a few feet above, just south of the viewing platform. It, and the hundreds of Least and Western Sandpipers, flushed before high tide and it did not return to the same area. Photos will be in eBird.
