An original poem by drplasticpicker

i am long legged and elegant, my bill straight like a needle pin ever slightly upward tilting and then ends in black

My ocean plastic picking is taking me even further north along the Pacific Coast. Photo credit by drplasticpicker.

Brandt’s Comorants, Whimbrels, Long-billed Curlews, Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Black Turnstones, Western Gulls, Marbled Godwits, one Surfbird and Snowy Plovers. These are the threatened Pacific coastal birds I saw on one of my ocean plastic picking walks.

The half-mile stretch of beach I clean most mornings is the southernmost tip of the South La Jolla Marine Protected Area.
