Birds near the Bay area (U.S.)

This September I happened to visit the Sunol wilderness near Pleasanton with my friends Tirtha and Pradyot.

Though it was cloudy and not ideal for bird watching we did find quite a few varieties like the Scrub Jay, Acorn wood pecker, twohees and wild turkey

We also visited the shoreline and Alviso Slough (San Jose) thanks to Vivek Pathak. Having seen the shoreline only from a distance all this while, it was quite interesting to see it is home to such a variety of birds.

.... Alviso had a lot more variety of wetland birds like the sandpipers, Egrets, cormorants and herons. Have captured a few here but definitely worth a second visit.
