Tecolote Canyon is one of several protected urban canyons in the San Diego area that support native plant communities and associated bird life. Birds that are here for the entire year include hawks, Anna’s Hummingbird, California Thrasher, House Wren, Wrentit, and both California and Spotted Towhees. At this time of the year most resident birds should be out and singing. Springtime migratory birds (Warblers, Orioles, et al.) may also be found. Easy walking. Restrooms at the trailhead by the Visitor Center.
Directions: Exit I-5 at Tecolote Road. Go east, away from the freeway to the parking lot at the end of Tecolote Road. Meet by the Tecolote Nature Center. Restrooms.
