Middle Harbor Shoreline Park (Oakland)
October 20 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Explore the Oakland shoreline with a focus on wintering shorebirds, ducks, grebes and gulls. The trip will mostly take place on flat surfaced paths. Children are welcome. Please, no dogs. Results from our observations will be reported on eBird (an online database for bird observations). Include your email when you sign in on-site if you want to see the eBird report. You can tweak it from what you remember that I don’t!
Leader: Penn Hughes, firstname.lastname@example.org, (510) 499-5491 for messages.
