American Avocet and Black-necked Stilt
Recurvirostra americana and Himantopus mexicanus
These are 2 of the many different kinds of shore birds that can be seen at the Palo Alto Baylands. Others include Willets, Marbled Godwits, gulls, terns, and pelicans. In the winter many migrating birds stop over for "refueling" at the wetlands. There are several miles of trails for walking, running or bike riding along the edges of the wetlands.
