Birding Aquatic Park 10/3/17

Today I went birding in Aquatic Park in Berkeley, CA  We walked out and back on west side of the main section between the playground and pier.The highlight of the trip was three Belted Kingfishers that were seen on both sides of the lagoon from the pier. We identified 18  bird species. There were also a number of passerines in the trees, but none of them showed themselves well enough for an ID. Also seen were Monarch Butterflies and a few Cabbage Whites.
