Good view of a Ruddy Turnstone.
Ruddy Turnstone in the center, with Dunlin in the foreground and background, and a couple of little peeps, probably Semipalmated Sandpipers.
Purple Martin, juvenile
Finally, Bald Eagles! We saw five of them in various places along the bay

We had a really incredible day on the bay!
