Join award-winning birding instructor Bob Lewis to check out gulls, ducks, and shorebirds behind the Sea Breeze Market near the Berkeley Marina. Then we’ll head north into McLaughlin Eastshore State Park, looking for more shorebirds and ducks plus grassland birds such as sparrows, finches, warblers, and raptors including White-tailed Kite. Along the shore, we’ll seek terns, grebes, pelicans and other water birds.
The paths are all level but may be muddy if it’s rained. Bring binoculars if you have them; a spotting scope is also helpful. There are restrooms behind the Sea Breeze and lunch is available there. The walk will take 2.5 to 3 hours and the distance is about two miles.
Directions: Meet behind the Sea Breeze market
