Sunday, October 29 Davis Cemetery
Come look for birds and friendly goblins at the Davis Cemetery on this Pre-Halloween bird walk. The 28-acre cemetery is a National Wildlife Federation certified wildlife habitat. Many species of birds are attracted to this suburban woodland and the historic swale. The cemetery is well known for a large flock of Wild Turkeys. Several species of raptors are regular at the cemetery, including the White-tailed Kite, Cooper’s Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, and Barn Owl. Western Bluebirds, Nuttall’s Woodpeckers, Red-breasted Sapsuckers, Dark-eyed Juncos, and Yellow-rumped Warblers also winter at the cemetery.
Birders at all skill levels are welcome. This will be a morning trip. Since it can be wet, sturdy shoes are recommended. We will meet in the Davis Cemetery at 820 Pole Line Road, Davis (the corner of Pole Line Rd and East 8th St.) at 8:00 AM. We should be finished by 11:00 A.M. The main entrance is on the East 8th Street side of the cemetery. There is limited parking in the cemetery; therefore, carpool, bike, or walk if you can. We will meet at the mini-parking area on the east driveway (on the right as you enter the cemetery). Contact the trip leader, Ed Whisler (916-204-0471 [cell phone] or firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information.
