Mount Burdell Bird Walk

July 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am to 10:00 am at Mount Burdell – San Andreas Trailhead

Join Jack and Corrina for a summer walk on Mount Burdell. We'll enjoy the tag end of the birdsong season and look for young birds from summer breeders, including potential Bullock's orioles, lark sparrows, house wrens, lazuli buntings, violet-green swallows, and various flycatchers. We'll also enjoy the year-round attractions of Mount Burdell, including bluebirds, acorn woodpeckers, and the magnificent oak trees.

Family Birding at Novato Library

This free event at the Novato Library will begin at 10 AM on Tuesday, July 16 and last about one hour. No registration required. Please bring binoculars if you have them; we will have a limited number of pairs available to share.

Seminar: Trees of Marin

July 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am at Wild Birds Unlimited

We talk a lot about birds - but not exclusively! In our July talk, we'll be introducing you to all the major native trees of Marin. Getting to grips with the bulk of our trees is easier than doing the same with birds: these 25 or so species will cover 95% of what you encounter in our woodlands and forests. Spend a relaxing hour with us one Sunday morning and you'll be prepared to both identify and understand our local trees. Questions like the following will no longer be a mystery to you:

  • How do tell a redwood from a Douglas-fir? Do we have giant sequoias here?
  • What is Marin's one native pine? What is the other one that you see everywhere?
  • Madrone or manzanita?
  • Where will I find willows, alders, or maples?
  • Which oak is that? And even more important, which is Jack's favorite oak species?

This free presentation will take place at Wild Birds Unlimited at Vintage Oaks from 10-10:45 AM on Sunday, July 21, with time for questions afterwards.
