The canyon at Rancho del Osos, carved out by Waddell Creek, is a great place for autumn bird watching! This class is scheduled on the first day of “FeederWatch”, to highlight the winterlong survey of birds organized by Project FeederWatch. On our morning walk students will see numerous varieties of bird species, including wetland and forest birds, as we walk on well graded trails that meander along Waddell Creek in the cool and clear autumn air. Your expert guide will review the biology and migratory patterns of each species you encounter - like a verbal version of a bird book and wildlife guide! Enjoying the beautiful location, while you learn about the fascinating local creatures that call the Central Coast home.
Participants should be properly prepared for the current weather conditions. This includes clothing suitable for variable weather. Bring a lunch, snacks, and a trail beverage or canteen with water.
Students will meet at the Ranger Station Interpretive Center, 1/4 mile inland from the yellow gate across from the Waddell State Beach parking lot on Highway 1 in Davenport.
