Birding Garretson Pt.

Yesterday I went birding at Garretson Pt. at Martin Luther King Regional Shoreline in Oakland, CA. The seasonal pond had plenty of water. There were good numbers of waterbirds and shorebirds. Saw my first Cinnamon Teal of the year. It was cold and windy so didn’t stay too long.
