When we go to the San Francisco area I like to stop at one of the California DFG wildlife viewing sites along San Pablo bay. I never know what I might see.
It was a windy day and the viewing an photography were difficult. I did see several Canvas Backs bobbing in the water.
I believe this is a female lesser scaup.
These Sanderlings were hunkered down in the marsh grasses, avoiding the wind I would guess.
As usual, feel free to correct me if I am wrong on my IDs.
San Pablo Bay is north and adjacent to the San Francisco Bay. A nice route for the birder as there are several places to pull off the road and check out the birds.
Back home I finally saw the crests on the Double Crested Cormorant. I was beginning to wonder about the name!
And a Marsh Wren stayed in sight long enough for me to snap a picture. I hear them frequently but they are shy and hide in the cattails.
You can find more birds at World Bird Wednesday, hosted by Springman.
