SEA SHORE science guide research is on going.

The new NATURE UNFOLDING science guide – Pacific Coast SEA SHORES displays over 80 species of birds, beach mammals, sand critters, and ocean casts-aways.

Learning to identify the shorebirds can start with these large conspicuous species. The Willet Tringa semipalmata , with long straight bill appears dull brown in color-but- when it takes flight, with its piercing call, it flashes a display of distinctive under wing feathers. And the Marbled Godwits Limosa fedoa appear very tall, with a long upward sweeping bill and a spectrum of brown and golden feathers.
