Birdwalk Sunday 10/13

From the Golden Gate Audubon Society announcement of October field trips:

eBird lists over 100 species in October for this 90-acre park with a variety of habitats: shorebirds, including rocky shore lovers like Black Oystercatcher and Black Turnstone, wintering ducks and other waterbirds, a nice range of grassland lovers, and, just maybe, Burrowing Owls.

Meet at the corner of Marina Blvd and Spinnaker Way. There should be ample on-street parking. The URL for the meeting site is https://goo.gl/maps/NLkYkPDp46q3ppxK7. We will be walking on level, paved paths, a maximum of 1.5 miles. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, and hats. There are chemical toilet restrooms near the meeting point, which are heavily used.
