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 most resident birds should be out and singing. Springtime birds, such as Grosbeaks and Orioles may also be found. Easy walking. Restrooms may be found at the trailhead by the Visitor Center. Participation is capped at 25.
