DeKorte Park in August

Can’t miss getting a few shorebirds here.  Yellowlegs, egrets, Forster’s terns, sandpipers, and herons really enjoy this place.

I Know the Way to San Jose

California, that is.  Had to visit mom.  Since I was on East Coast time, I could get up really early and take a few minutes to bird watch.  I remember Alviso, California as being the very big dump at the end of San Francisco Bay.  But since I was a little girl, the place has really changed.  It is a premier birding spot and is now called the Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge.
