New Year's at Arrowhead Marsh: Martin Luther King Regional Shoreline

Leaders: Stephanie Floyd & Mona Brauer

A 7.4' high tide will hit Arrowhead Marsh at 8:35 AM, creating an opportunity to see Ridgway's Rails, Virginia Rails, and Soras. Wintering ducks and shorebirds will be plentiful. The area is completely paved, so if it's raining, we'll still go as rain and high tide are optimum conditions for seeing rails. One year a very rare Yellow Rail was seen here in cold, driving rain! Dress in layers and raingear as needed. This is a
wheelchair-accessible bird walk. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome.

Directions: From I-880, go west on Hegenberger towards the airport and turn right on Pardee. Make a left at Swan and turn right into the entrance to Martin Luther King Regional Shoreline. Follow the entrance road all the way to the end. On the way to the parking lot, drive slowly and keep an eye out for Burrowing Owls on the berms to the right.
