Bird Walk - Lake Merritt and Arrowhead Marsh at High Tide

  • Needs a location

  • Carpool leaves at 8 AM from El Nido Ranch Road. Exit SR 24 at St. Stephens Drive east of Orinda. El Nido Ranch Road is parallel to and north of the freeway. Park just east of the intersection with St. Stephens Drive.

    Or meet at 8:30 AM in parking lot by Lake Merritt. Take SR 24 to Oakland and I-980, take Grand Avenue exit and turn left on Grand. Enter park at Children’s Fairyland (entry fee), and follow road around to parking lot entrance on right between boathouse and aviary. Birding through the many ducks and gulls, we may find a Tufted Duck, a bird seen almost annually. We will then drive to Arrowhead Marsh for the high tide around 11:24 AM; the rising tide should flush out rails. The area is also good for shorebirds and often loons are on the estuary. A visit to Garretson Point will finish our trip. Bring lunch and drinks. Category 1: Easy, little walking, smooth paths

    Trip Leader: Sandy Ritchie,[masked]-8048.

    I'll have to miss Arrowhead Marsh because Jan. 12 is a work day, but I'll join you by the Lake Merritt aviary.
