Birds and their Nests – April 29


Late April is an especially fun time to pay special attention to birds. Most local species will be at their showiest, singing their hearts out, defending territories, constructing nests, or perhaps already tending to their nestlings. All this makes them easier to find - and to approach! We will review slides of some local species and investigate some nests from past seasons up close, before we step outside to respectfully observe some pre-scouted nest attempts in progress. Binoculars will be helpful, but not essential on our walk.

Good to Know

1. Heavy rain cancels, as most class activities take place outdoors. Dress in layers for variable weather.

2. Classes may involve 1-2 miles of gentle walking.

3. Masks are optional unless Santa Clara County enters a high risk level.


All Classes in the Seasonal Cycles Natural History Series are $30/person.

If you are an individual planning to take 4 classes in the series, you can sign-up for the Seasonal Cycles Natural History Series Bundle on the previous page for $100 for any four classes.
