Valentine's is for the Birds! Bird Watching for Beginners and Enthusiasts

Valentine's is for the Birds! Bird Watching for Beginners and Enthusiasts
Sunday, February 14, 2016, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve

Learn the basics of bird watching with docents Beth and Tom. A variety of bird species are on view during a slow-paced walk on trails through the meadows and up the hills of this beautiful preserve. Learn observation skills, identify birds and understand their fascinating habits. Binoculars, boots and raincoats are recommended. All ages and expertise are welcome. Heavy rain cancels but light rain makes for good birding.
