This is one of the best birding venues in Nevada County, where 169 species have been observed to date. At this season there should still be a nice variety of ducks on the ponds, including Gadwall, American Wigeon, Wood Duck, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, and Hooded Merganser. Migration will be just underway, but we should see a good selection of Swallows (Northern Rough-wing, Barn, Cliff, Tree, and Violet-green), Orange-crowned Warblers will be singing on the hillsides, while wintering Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Hermit Thrushes, and Sparrows, among them Fox, Song, White-crowned, and Golden-crowned should still be with us. Western Bluebirds and Tree Swallows will be nesting in the bird boxes. We have a good chance of seeing or hearing more than 50 species of birds. Plan to be birding for three to four hours. Walking will be on mostly level ground, but we might make an optional excursion up a hillside or two. 

Please note the public health guidelines for this trip as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The walk is limited to six participants plus three leaders. There will not be a waiting list. Participants must register online and sign our liability waiver at the meeting point. Each person must register separately by sending an email to: sfasfieldtrips5@gmail.com. with your contact information. You will be given information about where to meet and what to bring. No drop-ins please.

  1. Dear Steve,

    I would like to register for this walk if possible. However, I might have to leave at 10:30 instead of 11:30 I am not sure if that will exclude me from this walk or not.

    Best Regards

    1. Hi Rhian,
      Sure, no problem. I just need to be sure an exit gate at Magnolia Creek is open for you. No problem, unless I forget. Remind me, please!
