The rains paused, the clouds parted, and 14 birders showed up to see 59 species show up along the Albany shoreline.  The Burrowing Owl once again eluded us, but we did see 11 species of ducks, as well as over 1,000 shorebirds, a Kingfisher, an Osprey, a White-tailed Kite, a close flyover of a Cooper’s Hawk for the 2nd month in a row. We also saw a flock of 10 American Pipits, and recorded almost 50 White-crowned Sparrows over the course of our walk.
