A few pictures from 17 October 2015:
I was watching shorebirds on the inside of Doran Beach, enjoying the calls of Long-billed Dowitchers (Limnodromus scolopaceus) — included in the photo above — when this happened:
Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) hunting shorebirds over Bodega Harbor
Later we watched this juvenile Elegant Tern (Thalasseus elegans) begging from an adult on Salmon Creek Beach (Check out the 'do!)
P.S. We also have an exciting invertebrate find to share with you, so stay tuned!
