Some Ducks of Lake Merritt

The Lake Merritt Wildlife Refuge (oldest wildlife refuge in the United States) has a wide variety of ducks.  They are charming, friendly and approachable and love a handout such as a bit of bread.

When visiting San Francisco, a great side trip for bird lovers is to get on BART and go over to Lake Merritt.  It is a peaceful place with some year around birds such as a variety of ducks and migratory birds such as the American White Pelicans.  All birds are free and relaxed in that beautiful refuge.
