Leaders: Jerry Ting and Steve Huckabone
Coyote Hills in March is all about the changing of the guard. Winter’s ducks will be gathered up in preparation to fly to their breeding grounds. Great Horned Owls should be on the nest. Early spring migration will be underway with dwindling numbers of crowned sparrows and great numbers of incoming swallows. The tule will be full of the sounds of singing Common Yellowthroats and chattering Marsh Wrens. Come out and see what all we can find! Scopes are helpful. Be prepared to walk a couple of miles on paved and gravel paths. Bring insect repellent. Heavy rain cancels. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome. Meet the leaders at the parking lot in front of the visitor cemter. $5 parking fee payable at kiosk, free to East Bay Parks annual pass holders. To reach the park from I-880 take SR-84 towards the Dumbarton Bridge. Exit at Paseo Padre Parkway, turn right on Paseo Padre and go about one mile. Turn left on Patterson Ranch Road to enter the park.
