Birding Northern California

Birding Northern California

Lake Merced is regarded by many birders as offering some of the best birding in the city of San Francisco. Much of the lake is surrounded by marsh and heavy willow growth, providing cover both for water birds and small passerines. Specialty birds: Resident—Chestnut-backed Chickadee. Summer—Allen’s Hummingbird; Violet-green and Bank Swallows. Winter—Western and Clark’s Grebes; Varied Thrush; Townsend’s Warbler. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
