California Part IV (Heron's Head Park, San Francisco)

My last day in California I googled Important Bird Areas in San Francisco and came up with quite a few parks on the bay... My friend and I picked Heron's Head Park and headed out...  The directions were interesting.  I had never seen the SF projects before... Eventually we found the park, nestled between the ghetto and an industrial area. 

The first birds to greet us were White-crowned Sparrows...


Then came the water birds...

American Avocets

Black-bellied Plover

Are these next ones Least Sandpipers? 



I loved this Snowy Egret...

  


This looks like a Spotted Sandpiper...




I took a ton of terrible photos of this scene:


There's quite a lot going on, but it's hard to tell... In the foreground is the Great Egret, then on the left are some terns, what looks like some Willets, and a pair of Black Oystercatchers. 

I had read that Elegant Terns hang out at the park so I'm guessing that is what these guys are...


A Long-billed Curlew...


That was about it... Not bad for a strange little park!
