"DeKorte Park is a major resting point for migrating shorebirds.  The water level has been lowered to create more feeding areas and Sandpipers and Yellowlegs are plentiful. 

"There are also large numbers of Forster's Tern with a mix of adult and immature birds.  Aside from the markings, you can tell which are the young ones by the number of dives required to catch a fish." (Thanks, Sandy!)

Lesser Yellowlegs is above. Semipalmated Sandpiper is below.
