White-tailed Kite (Elanus leucurus) - Juvenile Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum) Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus) American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana) Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) Canada Goose (Branta canadensis)

A small saltmash that is being restored with native plants. It is next to some kind of rendering plant which attracts a large number of gulls. Hopefully, the wind is blowing the other way. Good views of the bay and Bay Bridge, and occasional shorebirds not often seen in San Francisco.
