The muddy and sandy area of this wetland habitat is home to many small creatures such as clams, ghost shrimp, marine worms and other small animals. The bay waters support a great variety of sea life, as well as resident and migratory waterfowl and shorebirds. Birdwatchers can also enjoy the vistas of hawks, brown pelicans, cormorants, surf scoters, western grebes, terns, and snowy and common egrets, among many other species flying in sky.
Hours: 7 A.M. to 8 P.M.

In the winter, bird watching is best because migrant waterfowl and shorebirds gathered in numerous quantities in the bay. Pelicans, egrets and hawks can see throughout the year in the area. Restrooms, picnic tables and windbreaks are available at the foot of the far pier. There is considerable parking at the entrance of the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area.
