Birdwalk for Beginners at Western Gateway Park,

Penn Valley

This is listed as a Beginner’s Bird Walk, but all levels of birders are welcome. The more experienced eyes we have, the more birds we see. Join me for an easy 2 hour walk over flat terrain in this very birdie park. Birds to expect are California Scrub and Stellar’s Jays, Western Bluebird, Yellow-billed Magpie, Acorn, Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, Northern Flicker, and hopefully some early spring arrivals of Bullock’s Oriole, Western Kingbird, and Western Tanager. We will also be on the lookout for raptors, including Red-tailed and Red-shouldered Hawks, and American Kestrels. From Grass Valley, take HWY 20 west toward Marysville. In about 5 miles, turn left at the light on Penn Valley Drive. Go right at the 1st stop sign to continue on Penn Valley Dr (the road turns into Spenceville Dr. if you were to go straight). The entrance to the park will be about 1 mile on the right. Meet at 8:00 AM in the parking lot by the basketball courts.
