Resting on the rocks
Yesterday (6 November 2017), a few people reported a Rock Sandpiper (Calidris ptilocnemis) at the southern end of Bodega Head. It has been observed on the rocks below the outer State Parks parking lot.
I haven't seen it yet, but here's a photo of a Rock Sandpiper from several years ago (on Bodega Head in February 2013).
Rock Sandpipers are rare in the Bodega Bay area. I hope the one that was spotted yesterday stays around for a little while!
