Coastside Trail: Best birds 2

These are my best shots from the next part of the south-to-north trek along the coast of Half Moon Bay to Princeton-by-the-Sea. We spent our time close to shore buffeted by coastal winds.

Here’s the key by column:
Column 1: Snowy Plover + Sanderlings, Snowy Plover, Caspian Tern, Caspian Tern, Elegant Tern (flying)
Column 2: Whimbrel, White-crowned Sparrow, Bewick’s Wren, Common Yellowthroat
Column 3: Western Tiger Swallowtail (butterfly), Red-tailed Hawk, Eared Grebe, Northern Gannet (in the wrong ocean)
