One of my favorite birding spots is along the rocky shore and inlet of San Pablo Bay near San Francisco. It's a spot where I regularly see egrets, gulls, sandpipers, grebes and more. This past Monday -- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day -- I found myself back at my familiar haunt. I was listening to NPR on my iPod as I often do while birding. King's "I Have A Dream" speech was being rebroadcast in its entirety. I was marveling to myself how powerful that speech was and still is when I spied these Black Turnstones and Black Oystercatchers. The Black Turnstone is a lifer for me. The irony of seeing these two "black" birds on this day was not lost on me.
