Birding: Mount Burdell / Stafford Lake or Rush Creek

Saturday, May 18 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Join Jim and Bob for a field trip to the gentle slopes of Mr. Burdell where we’ll listen to and observe the impressive variety of songbirds that make this area their springtime home. Species we might see include Lark Sparrow, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Bullock’s Oriole, Lazuli Bunting, and Grasshopper Sparrow, among many other possibilities. In the afternoon we plan to continue birding at Stafford Lake or Rush Creek.

This will be a moderate hike with many opportunities to look at birds and spring wildflowers. Wear comfortable walking shoes and layered clothing. Bring water and snacks. We will meet at the end of San Andreas Drive in Novato. Heavy rain cancels.

Directions: Take Hwy 101 to Novato. Take the San Marin Drive/Atherton Avenue exit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn west on San Marin Drive. Go approximately 2 miles and turn right on San Andreas Drive. Drive nearly to the end of the road and park on the street. No restrooms available.
