Leaders: Vicki Robinson & Lynn Feindel
The trail along Ward Creek in Hayward runs through a heavily wooded greenbelt and offers the possibility of locating some hard-to-find species: Pacific Wren, Varied Thrush, and Golden-crowned Kinglet. We will also look for Hairy Woodpecker, Brown Creeper, Red-breasted Sapsucker, and wintering warblers. We will meet at East Avenue Park, bird the park, and descend the greenbelt trail, birding the route down to Campus Drive. We will then ferry drivers back to their cars. Heavy rain cancels. Restrooms are available at East Ave. Park.
Directions: Locate the intersection of Second St. and E St. (large Catholic Church). Take E St. east and, at a ‘Y’ junction, bear right on East Ave. and continue to East Avenue Park at the end (1.8 m from 2nd St.)
