See what birds are in the park and on the bay. Varied habitats within the park host a vast array of species, and the quiet of an early morning is one of the best times to explore. We'll look for spring migrants and resident birds, as well as raptors and waterfowl.
Possibilities during spring migration include: Black-headed Grosbeak, Bullock's Oriole, Cedar Waxwing, Common Yellowthroat, Rufous Hummingbird, Swainson's Thrush, Vaux's Swift, Warbling Vireo, Western Tanager, and Western Wood-Pewee. Warblers may include Orange-crowned, Yellow, Black-throated Gray, and Townsend's. From the Swallow family, there may be Tree, Violet-green, Cliff, Barn, and Northern Rough-winged.
Bring binoculars and meet before 8 a.m. at the parking lot. We'll return around noon. Make $25 Birdathon donation online or bring cash or check. No registration required. Leader: MaryFrances Mathis, (425) 922-9524.
