December 19 has a high tide of 5.7 ft peaking at 9:22AM. This pushes shorebirds up close to our viewing area. Enjoy a morning stroll along the Boardwalk with MCAS Field Trip leader, Mark Mushkat, to identify wintering shorebirds and migrants, sea ducks and grebes, and the land birds occupying the coastal sage scrub habitat. It is a short walk of about one mile on a boardwalk and dirt path.
