Black-Necked Stilt and Alaskan Black Turnstone at San Leandro Creek

This is part of what makes living in SF worth it and it’s less than 30 minutes from downtown SF via Bart and bike. Part of the Oakland Estuary and the great Bay Trail, this is at the junction of Martin Luther King Regional Shoreline and San Leandro creek between the Oakland airport and the Oakland Coliseum.

It’s not very well known and much less crowded than any of the San Francisco parks. Right now some of the western bird migrations are happening from Alaska, joining native shoreline birds

These are native Black-necked Stilt mingling with Alaskan Black Turnstone that just migrated here for the winter a few weeks ago
