Aquatic Park is a long, 68-acre lagoon surrounded by greenery. The lagoon attracts lots of water birds and the adjacent trees and shrubs are home to many species of woodland birds, with winter residents returning now. Noted Berkeley birding teacher Rusty Scalf will lead the group along the two-mile flat, easy trail around the lagoon. Birders of all skill levels are welcome, especially beginners. We should have close looks at many birds, so binoculars are helpful but not necessary.
Curious what birds you might see? eBird has a list of species sighted here in previous Octobers.
Directions: Meet at the end of Bolivar Drive in Berkeley, 100 Bolivar Drive, where there is a public parking lot.
