Garin/Dry Creek Regional Parks
Leaders: Jerry Steenhoven and Mona Brauer
fieldtrips AT ohloneaudubon.org

On this relaxed trip we'll explore Garin/Dry Creek Regional Parks from the Dry Creek entrance. April is an excellent time to see a wide variety of birds. Residents and newly arrived migrants will be courting and setting up nesting territories. From this entrance, excellent riparian habitat, oak woodland and grazed pasture are accessible. We'll be looking closely at bird behavior: setting up breeding territories, courtship displays and signs of nesting. Birds will be in their finest plumages, and we should find quite a variety: woodpeckers, flycatchers, warblers, wrens, sparrows, and thrushes. 

Meet at the Dry Creek Regional Park parking area. Take Mission Blvd. in Hayward south to Whipple Rd. Turn east toward the hills on the continuation of Whipple (May Rd.) past the apartment complex to the parking area on the right. Be prepared for moderate walking. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome. Heavy rain cancels.
