Usually, we plan these trips on the rising tides, to watch shorebirds fly off of the mudflats and swirl around in roving (sometimes massive) flocks. This Thursday trip, though, will start right before the peak high tide of 5.2 ft at 9:28 a.m. Shorebird species expected include Western and Least Sandpiper, Dunlin, Marbled Godwit, Willet, dowitchers, Black-bellied Plover, and American Avocet. There are picnic tables available, if you want to bring lunch. Bring a spotting scope, if you have one. Restroom available. Event repeats Friday (#FR12), Saturday (#SA41), and Sunday (#SU66).
