Bird Walk on the Pedro Point Headlands This Weekend

Bird hike on the beautiful Pedro Point Headlands with Naturalist Paul Donahue. All are welcome.

With its diverse habitats of coastal scrub, coastal prairie, Monterey Pine woods and Eucalyptus forest, all accessible via a good trail system, the Pedro Point Headlands is a great place to become more familiar with Pacifica's winter avifauna. About 30 species of birds can readily be found here on a typical winter day. We'll meet at the Pedro Point Firehouse in Pacifica at 8:30 AM and carpool up to the headlands from there. Once up on the headlands, we'll walk about a two mile loop that will take us through the representative habitats and along the top of the high bluff with its spectacular views out over the Pacific.

We'll aim to be back at the trailhead ABOUT 11:00 AM.

As we will be looking primarily at small birds in the vegetation, binoculars are strongly recommended.

More information about the Pedro Point Headlands, including a trail map, descriptions of the habitats, and a list of the area's birds can be found at www.pedropointheadlands.org. This hike is brought to you by the Pacifica Land Trust, funded by the CA Coastal Conservancy and supported by the Pedro Point Community Association.
