Photos and movies by Ann Brundige. Godwits, gulls and curlew photographed in Scripps Marine Refuge, La Jolla, California. Pelican video from Bolivar Penninsula, Texas. Thanks to my daughter Ellen for letting me include the photograph of her and the sand castle. I'd give you the URL of her web page, but she has over 80 of them! Here is the link to her index. There are good biographical, science, and history web pages listed there. http://www.squidoo.com/greekgeeklenses
Bird identification from personal experience and with reference to The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Western North America by David Allen Sibley.
Shore Birds is a supporting activity that should be read after doing the Explore Tide Pools activity. If you do not have the entire activity set, which includes another supporting book, tests, photos, writing activities, and off-computer materials, you can download it free from the Annie's Resource Attic web site.
