Time
8:30AM - 10:00AM

Join birding expert Rebecca Coulter as she leads a group walk through the Garden for a morning of watching and listening for a variety of birds. During our walk we may see signs of the breeding season: nesting resident species like Dark-eyed Junco, Black Phoebe, Song Sparrow, and Spotted Towhee. We’ll also be on the lookout for some of our migrant species: Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak, Hooded Oriole, and Yellow Warbler – some just passing through, some stopping to breed in our region. Both beginner and experienced birders will appreciate the diverse and beautiful birds that make their home among a variety of California’s native plants in the meadow, woodlands, and creek side.

Although the Garden is dog-friendly, participants are asked to not bring their dog(s) to this class.
