28 Aug Wednesday Walk – Fresno State campus CANCELED
Join us on the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day for a bird walk on Fresno State’s campus with Biology professor Dr. Tricia Van Laar. We will meet in the southwest corner of the parking lot at Campus Pointe – across Chestnut Ave from the SaveMart Center. We will carpool together to the Planetarium on Fresno State’s campus, meeting there at 8:10am. The Fresno State campus has several unique microcosms that we will be able to visit.
We will see nesting Ravens and Bushtits. There are large numbers of Brewer’s and Red-winged Blackbirds and Brown-headed Cowbirds in the Ag fields. There are usually Red-tailed Hawks as well. Last spring there were nesting pied-billed grebes and coots on the equestrian ponds. Killdeer are quite common as well. We have all the standards too like Robins, Mockingbirds, Mourning Doves, Scrub-jays, House Finches, etc.
Checklist: binoculars, scope, field guide, snacks, water, sunscreen, hat
