It’s always an exciting time to bird watch at Olompali! Beginning and experienced birders are invited to join leaders Janet Bodle and Rich Cimino of Yellowbilled Tours to view Olompali’s diverse avian residents as we walk the old ranch road to the park’s reservoir. Expect to see a wide variety of species who thrive in the park’s oak savanna and open grasslands: raptors, warblers, nuthatches, thrushes and – of course – many woodpeckers. Sharpen your bird-identification skills, gain a deeper appreciation for our local ecology and have a lot of fun along the way. Families are welcome!
Meet in the Olompali parking lot at 9:00 a.m. Wear layered clothing and bring binoculars, snack, plenty of water and a birding field guide if you have one.
