Walnut Creek Parklands

July 1 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 pm

Walnut Creek Parklands Bird Walk

We’ll wander up one of the shady creeks on the flanks of Mt. Diablo looking and listening for oak woodland and riparian birds. The usual oak woodland birds (titmice, nuthatches, towhees, Acorn Woodpeckers) should be on hand. Summer breeders should include House Wrens, Ash-throated Flycatchers, Western Kingbirds, Black-headed Grosbeaks, and the three vireos, maybe a couple of warblers.

Water and restrooms near the start. Walking is on a fire road that trends generally uphill, but is not steep.

Leaders: Steve & Carol Lombardi, hotrock175@gmail.com, cell 925/785-0130

This trip is free but advance registration is required. The exact location and directions will be provided to registered participants. Registration will open on June 22 and close on Tuesday, June 29 at 4 p.m.
