Between the Jetties, watch for Surf, Black and White-winged Scoter, Common and Pacific Loon, Pelagic, Brandt’s, and Double-crested Cormorant, Brown Pelican, and Harlequin Duck.  During migration walk east from the parking lot at low tide and scan the exposed rocks for migrant Wandering Tattler, Rock Sandpiper, Ruddy and Black Turnstone, Sanderling, Western and Least Sandpiper, and Surfbird. Along the beach watch for gulls, sandpipers, and plovers. Oystercatchers are regular here, watch for Peregrine Falcon strafing the shorebirds.
