Meet at the Park & Ride at Hwy 20 and Rough and Ready Hwy (Penn Valley) and carpool to Black Swan (about 15 minutes away).
We will walk down a gently sloping Jeep track that runs along Snake Creek to the Preserve’s large pond (about one half mile). After birding the area of the pond, participants have the option of returning on the Jeep track or continuing on the loop trail (about another 1.5 miles), which circles the pond while climbing (steeply in places) around the hydraulic cliff face, giving spectacular views of the Preserve. In addition to many wildflowers, we may see or hear about 50 bird species, including Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Western Kingbird, Hutton’s and Warbling Vireos, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Phainopepla, Rufous- crowned Sparrow, Bullock’s Oriole, up to six species of migrant warblers, Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Lazuli Bunting. If you are interested in attending please send an email with your contact information in case of questionable weather.
