It's been a while since I've been out photographing birds, so it was a lot of fun when I happened upon a resting flock not too far from the shoreline.
The most active birds at that time were the American Avocets. But pictured are also the Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Marbled Godwit, the occasional Willet, and what I believe were Sparrow. I don't claim to know anything about birds...but I do have a National Geographic Field Guide to California birds (Wife got it for me as a present)!
