Shorebird Class at Schollenberger Park

On Sunday, August 12, my Sebastopol Community Center Class and I explored Schollenberger Park in Petaluma.  We had wonderful close-up looks at many Long-billed Dowitchers.  We also got nice looks at the Pacific Golden Plover.  A highlight was the appearance of a Long-tailed Weasel on the trail!

A few of us then continued on to the Sonoma Landtrust Property (SLT) near Port Sonoma Marina after Schollenberger Park.

Here is a list of the shorebirds that we saw for the day:

Black-bellied Plover, Pacific Golden Plover, Semipalmated Plover (SLT), Killdeer, Black-necked Stilt, American Avocet, Greater Yellowlegs, Willet (SLT), Whimbrel (SLT), Long-billed Curlew, Marbled Godwit, Western Sandpiper (SLT), Least Sandpiper, Long-billed Dowitcher
