Migratory Bird Site, Oakland

Was this helpful?

In Oakland, near the Coliseum, there exists a dedicated/ protected migratory bird site. The site is part of the Martin Luther King Shoreline Park. Access the site by the parking lot & walking bridge across Damon Slough, east side, off of the 66th Ave./Zone Way offramp (toward San Leandro Bay). Or access by Edgwater Drive (northerly end) by the Garretson Point Staging (MLK park) area that has parking. Walk right up to the 8 acre bird site. The fenced site is most active (bird use) during the winter rainy season (November-April). The site was created for migratory birds, shorebirds and local birds. An education sign provides information at the site.

In Oakland near the Coliseum, exists a dedicated migratory bird site. An education sign provides information. The site is part of the Martin Luther King Shoreline Park along San Leandro Bay. The site connects to park trail system. Access the site via 66th Ave/Zone Way off ramp (head west), park and walk across pedestrian bridge over Damon Slough. Or access the site at the northerly end of Edgewater Drive. The site is near the Garretson Point Staging area of MLK park The fenced site is most active with migratory and shoreline birds during the rainy season (November - April). The site was built to create and enhance the wetlands. Thus rain water accumlates there and creates a mini pond with a raised island in the middle for the birds to rest upon. I've observed over 15 species of birds at one time at the site. Great place to picnic near by or to go to for a quick educational excursion with kids.
