NCOS this morning

A first-year Bonaparte’s Gull was a surprise at North Campus Open Space this morning. This is a new bird for me at this location. It flew in, landed, & foraged along the edge of the channel for about five minutes, and then flew out towards the ocean.

Two Snowy Plovers foraging on the sandbar in the south channel were a welcome sight.

A female Red-necked Phalarope continues on the sandbar in the south channel.
