White pelicans were back in force; at least 100+ on the freshwater side of the dike trail, and that many spread out over exposed tideflats just beyond the Deer Lagoon estuary on Useless Bay (an odd location for them).
Other highlights: 100+ caspian terns, 100s of swallows working extensive insect hatches (violet-green, tree, barn, bank, northern rough-wing), and arrival of some shorebirds ( greater yellow legs, whimbrel, long-billed dowitchers, semipalmated, least, and western sandpipers).
