Head to Petaluma to explore Shollenberger Park, one of the major hotspots in the North Bay. We’ll walk the ~ 3-mile loop leisurely, looking for waterfowl, rails, shorebirds, waders, raptors, sparrows, and other wintering and year-round passerines. Perhaps we’ll see a White-tailed Kite or a Northern Harrier. Maybe a cooperative Virginia Rail or Marsh Wren will give us a look-or at the very least-a listen! Say’s Phoebes and Lincoln Sparrows might be back in town as well! Let’s go find out!
Learn about the common birds, animals, and plants of Shollenberger in the newly published Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide: https://petalumawetlands.org/field-guide/
