      Hi Jeanne,



      It's likely that these are Sanderlings and/or Western Sandpipers. We haven't
      had several hundred Snowy Plovers in Northern California for at least a
      hundred years! But there might have been one or two among those shorebirds..



      Yes, and we appreciate those Turkey Vultures!

      Tues, 13 July 2010. I just received a call that several hundred Snowy
      Plovers have arrived at the Brush Creek lagoon. This is in Manchester State
      Park. Unfortunately she also reported a dead Dolphin. The Turkey Vultures
      are doing their job.

      Tues, 13 July 2010 -- This morning, I saw my first SNOWY PLOVER of
      the season standing right by a pole holding the symbolic fence north of
      Ward Ave on Ten Mile beach. Shorebird numbers have increased quite
      a bit since last week. (Last Thursday, 7/8, Jim saw a MARBLED GODWIT
      at Inglenook Ck, but it has moved on).

      Other birds that I had: 2 Peregrine Falcons, 27 Whimbrels, 12 Sanderlings,
      79 Western Sandpipers, 7 Least Sandpipers, 1 Caspian Tern, 5 Killdeer
      (3 were chicks), 3 Ospreys, 53 Heermann's Gulls, 24 Western Gulls, and
      18 California Gulls.

      The Snowy Plovers should build well into the teens and twenties in
      August and September.
