Habitat and Birds

Check Salishan Spit for Western, Glaucous-winged, Thayer’s, Herring, California, Ring-billed, or Heermann’s Gulls. Caspian Terns are pretty common here as well in summer. In the bay look for Common, Pacific, and Red-throated Loons (Yellow-billed has been seen here as well) along with Horned and Red-necked Grebes from fall through spring.
