Event Details

Mitchell Canyon on the north side of Mount Diablo, is the home of a rich variety of breeding birds including flycatchers, vireos, finches and hummingbirds. Resident birds, such as jays, woodpeckers and raptors are joined by neotropical migrants, along the creek’s lush border of cottonwood, willow and alder. Warblers, including Wilson’s, Townsend’s, Black-throated Gray and Hermit can be especially numerous in the oaks here. On this relaxed hike of three to four miles, we will focus on identification by plumage, behavior, song and call. The trail begins in an oak savanna woodland before entering the creek habitat. The oak savanna and chaparral areas shelter many species. Besides birds, these areas can display Wind Poppies, Chinese Houses and other wildflowers not found at Point Reyes. This is a special area at a special time of the year. If time permits there will be an optional visit to another nearby site and a different group of birds.
