Because of ideal mid-morning tidal conditions, we get a comfortable start time and ringside seat to observe incoming Albany Mudflat shorebirds in time with the outgoing tide. Expect Western Sandpiper, Marbled Godwit, Willet. No bathrooms or water here. Porta-potties at western terminus of Buchanan Street. If using Google maps, enter general destination as Albany Mudflat State Marine Reserve, 1 Buchanan St., Albany. From I-580E, the exit is 13/Buchanan Street. From I-80 W, exit 13 (then complicated; you will need to research). From I-580 W/I-80E exit is 13A/Buchanan Street. Bring scopes, binoculars; clothes for possible fog and wind.
