On Saturday D. and I went to the National Wildlife Refuge in Alviso. I took a little walk on the Alviso Slough Trail in the southwest part of the refuge; here's part 1 of the pics I took (part 2 here).

Little sandpipers known as peeps run along the edge of a salt pond.
A willet forages in the salt pond.
