Some Bodega Bay Birds (SON)
- Dear Birders,
While on a family vacation, I had an opportunity to do a little
birding around the Bodega Harbor. The good viewing opportunities made
for some great birding. Inside the harbor, a few birds of note
included approximately 300-500 Brandt, +/- 75 Surf Scoters, +/-1000
Marbled Godwits, +/-200 Willets, 20 Black Turnstones,+/-40 Common
Loon, 1 Red-throated Loon, 10 Sanderlings,6 Dunlin,a few Black
Oysercatcher, several Red-breasted Mergansers,amongst others.
It's been many years since I've been to Bodega Bay and this was my
first time birding the area. The small size of the harbor provided
fantastic viewing and photographic opportunities from all around.
What a treat!
