    Welcome to WhatFish! 

    Couldn't it be a young fish? I've heard that flounder start life with eyes on both sides of their heads and one eye migrates to the top side when they hang out on the ocean floor. I am now about 50% above my knowledge of fish.

    Yes, that sounds right. I guess they gotta start small. WhatFish — I like it! 😄

    Thanks!

    Darn!! I first thought you meant Greater Roadrunner!! I was going to rush over to San Fran to see it!!!! 😏

    You can still make your trip with some optimism. This Greater Roadrunner was seen TODAY!!! in Oakland, sister city to San Francisco on the other side of the Bay. Sighting and photo by Scott Gottesman, with thanks to Steve Buffi for bringing this to my attention.

  3. I'm not a natural at identifying birds, and shore birds are my worst. I photographed these birds rummaging together yesterday by San Francisco Bay. Pretty sure the bigger one is a Whimbrel, but no idea about the smaller ones behind the Whimbrel and as a pair in the other photo. Seems their beaks are too short for Marbled Godwit and too long for anything else I can think of. Thanks for your help!
