Redwood Shores - Radio/Canvasback/Shearwater - Oct. 8, '09
Walking Distance: 2.21 miles
Walking Time: 50 minutes (4:38 - 5:28 p.m.)
Start & End Point: Shore Dogs Park, Redwood Shores, CA
On today's walk, I repeated and walked some extra ground, just to walk on a few bits of trails I might have missed before. I parked at Shore Dogs Park, and admired the birds across the street in the lagoon, and then walked down Radio Road, until I reached the intersection with Redwood Shores. At this point I walked down the public path to the public parking lot off Canvasback Way. I turned left onto Canvasback Way, left on Shearwater, and left on Redwood Shores Parkway, then back to my car at Shore Dogs Park -- where I'd spotted about 90+% of the birds listed below.
Wildlife Sightings: 20 sea gulls; 20 ducks; 2 white pelicans and 1 brown one (flying overhead); 10 unidentified brown shorebirds + 8 with very long bills; 8 little brown jobs (LBJs); 1 cormorant perched on tower; 15 black-necked stilts; 15 American Avocets; 2 Canada geese crossing the street (one limping). I had only an (expired) disposable camera with me this evening; so I doubt I'll have any pictures worth posting.
