Putah Creek and Gardens at Manfred Kusch’s Home

Anna's Hummingbird on Peach Flowers; Sarah Mayhew

This trip is full and has a long wait list.

Tour Manfred Kusch’s birding gardens between Davis and Winters. He has cultivated his home garden and surrounding area, which border on Putah Creek, into a true birding extravaganza. He attracts a wide variety of birds in the gardens and habitat around the house, especially hummingbirds and orioles. The multi-layered vegetation on either side of the creek hosts spring migrants and residents such as grosbeaks, tanagers and a variety of warblers and vireos.
We’ll meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Marketplace Shopping Center (near Big 5 Sporting Goods, 1301 W. Covell, just east of Hwy 113). Bring binoculars, scopes, cameras, snacks and beverages. High winds or a significant rainstorm cancel this trip.

Space is limited; RSVP early. More info: Joe Clemens, (e-mail preferred; phone is 281-900-0808)
