21 April 2013, 3 pm - 4:30 pm - I birded Lake Cleone @ MacKerricher SP by myself while my grandkids, wife & grandkids parents diverted my attention. At Lake Cleone there was a Lesser Yellowlegs just to the left of the picnic table out in the water. " In the parking lot" feeding out of the puddles there were 6 Short-billed Dowitchers with 9 Western Sandpipers and 4 Least Sandpipers.
Out on the beach there were 2 Caspian Terns fishing in the surf. Beyond the surf there were Red-throated Loons on the water with at least one Pacific Loon, at least one Common Loon and flying by were Loons which I could not give my full attention due to aforementioned toddlers.
