Located on the southern shore of the island of Alameda, Ballena Bay hosts a great diversity of wintering and resident waterfowl and shorebirds, including diving ducks, loons, cormorants, terns, and rocky shorebirds. Rarities like Long-tailed Duck, White-winged and Black Scoter, and Common Tern have all been observed here in the recent past, and it's one of the best places in the county to see Surfbirds. Join Bob and Juli for a short morning walk around the Ballena Bay peninsula. Bring a scope if you have one. Rain cancels.
