Birding with Rich Cimino

No registration required. All participants are welcome to join this trip.

This year we will be birding the Olompali Park well into spring migration. We will be looking for early spring migrant arrivals. It’s always an exciting time to birdwatch at Olompali State Historic Park. We’ll be looking for early spring arrivals such as the Western Flycatcher, Ash-throated Flycatcher and the Hooded Oriole. Beginning and experienced birders are invited to join leaders Rich Cimino and others to bird the park. Early spring arrivals should be on hand as we walk the old ranch road to the park’s reservoir. Olompali State Park features oak savanna, open grasslands and riparian habitat: There is a good assortment of species, raptors, flycatchers, swallows, vireos, warblers, woodpeckers, nuthatches, thrushes, and orioles. Be early, the field trip will start at 8:30 AM in the parking lot. There is an $8.00 parking fee, pay by cell is now possible in the park. Rain cancels.

DIRECTIONS: Exit Hwy 101 at Atherton Ave/San Marin Dr in Novato. Follow the signs to Olompali State Historic Park. A right turn onto the Old Redwood Hwy frontage road will take you to the park. There is an $8 parking fee.
