Join us for a pleasant walk through some small woods into a typical grassland habitat. The birds should be on territory and singing. We can expect to see, or at least hear, California Thrasher, Lazuli Bunting, and several species of sparrows. In previous years, a pair of Golden Eagles has nested on the mi-crowave tower on the hill, and we hope to see them again this year. The hike is along a gravel path and some paved areas, involving a moderate uphill slope. We’ll proceed slowly, so most will have no trouble with the walk. Bring water and sunscreen.  Pre-registration is not required, and all are wel-come.  Heavy rain cancels.  We’ll meet at the visitor’s center on Skyline Blvd., near the intersection with Grizzly Peak. The simplest route is to take CA 13 and exit at Park Blvd. Turn left on Mountain Blvd and right onto Snake Rd. Stay on Snake Rd until you reach Skyline. Take a sharp left onto Skyline and look for the entrance to the parking lot.
