This Holiday season, Kathy and I visited our two families that reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kathy’s daughter Laina and family live in Alameda, only a few minutes walk from the bay shore. This provides a shoreline birding walk that’s hard to beat, and readers of this blog will have seen many prior posts dedicated to the birds seen on these walks. The birds seen this December were no disappointment. All the photos that follow were taken with my superzoom (83X!) Nikon Coolpix P900.
Marbled Godwits and others
The accompaniment in the following video was provided free of charge by a saxophonist seated a few feet behind me on the bird watching platform.
