Join us for a spring bird walk to outer Corte Madera Marsh. We’ll start by visiting the Marin Audubon Restoration Area and continue out to the edge of San Francisco Bay. We’ll complete a 2.5 mile loop back to the flood control pond and finish at our starting location. The winter residents should be leaving and spring visitors arriving. We can expect to see red-wing blackbirds, several species of swallows, sparrows and boisterous Western Meadowlarks. We may also catch a glimpse of the resident osprey and peregrine falcon. We’ll stop along the trees that line the main hiking trail to check for migrating warblers! This trip requires several miles of walking on flat terrain at a comfortable pace. It’s the perfect trip for beginning birders and those who want to explore more of Corte Madera Marsh.
Restrooms are available at nearby stores, but not on the marsh. Bring binoculars, scopes, layers, water, and snacks. Light rain does not cancel the trip.
DIRECTIONS: Corte Madera Ecological Reserve is located behind Trader Joe’s in Corte Madera. Meet in the parking lot behind the store, accessed by the driveway on the southside of World Market.
