This Lake Is For the Birds

Literally.  Lake Merritt, in Oakland, California, is actually a tidal lagoon and includes the oldest dedicated wildlife refuge in the United States, which was established in 1870! I am fortunate to live across the street from the Lake, which is why I take so many photographs of birds!
