Bird Walks


The Hayward Shoreline and the San Francisco Bay are home to over 124 species of birds during the fall and winter migration. As a crucial stop on the Pacific Flyway, the Bay and surrounding salt marshes are perfect for birding whether you’re a beginner or an expert.

Nothing Could by Finer than Birding in Carolina

This time of year is perfect for birdwatching: the weather, spending time with comrades, and all the returning winter birds.  We won’t need to trek to the Carolinas for a bit of “finer” today.  Meet at  Eden Landing Ecological Reserve.

This Gives Stomping Grounds a Whole New Meaning

Meet at the Interpretive Center today where we will seek out the often over-looked bird, the Ring-billed Gull. They have a funny behavior where they stomp the ground in a dance-like maneuver to lure prey to the surface.
