From Novato we headed first to Stafford Lake Park, a Marin County park were we saw many of today's land birds. The guide heard a Red-breasted Sapsucker which was never found. It was not yet raining, but very overcast and rather threatening. We then headed directly to Waldo's Dike to await the high tide. While at the Dike, other observers saw Swamp Sparrow. During the day, other observers Bewick's Wren, Winter Wren, and Violet-green Swallow.
