November is the best month to try and see longspurs in Alameda County. We'll start this trip walking around the damp shortgrass of Mount Trashmore searching for Lapland Longspurs (or possibly other longspurs), as well as pipits, geese, sparrows, and larks. When we've had our fill of grassland birds, we'll head over to Frank's Dump where high tide should push lots of shorebirds up into the roost. If we're extra lucky, we might see a Short-eared or Burrowing Owl. Rain cancels.we'll head over to Frank's Dump where high tide should push lots of shorebirds up into the roost.

Directions: Exit I-880 at Winton Ave. and head west all the way to the end. Meet at the paved parking lot inside the gate (not the dirt lot outside the gate). A restroom is available at that lot. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome.
