Windy Cove is another great place for viewing birds and is also a parking spot should you want to walk up the hill on the right to look at the heron rookery. Nesting begins in June and great blue herons, great egrets, and double crested cormorants utilize the barren eucalyptus trees to build their nests and raise young. At low tide, the view from Windy Cove across the bay to a large mudflat called Grassy Island offers a chance to see flocks of American white pelicans as well as egrets, herons, and shorebirds.
