Western Bluebird

Bird Walks

Many birds make their homes in Edgewood Park, such as the Red-shouldered Hawk and the Western Bluebird.  During the fall and winter, other birds may just be passing through on their migration to somewhere else. All are a joy to watch and hear.

Sign up for our first guided hike of 2022! Learn about the winter and year-round resident birds of Edgewood with biologist Gina Barton on Sunday, February 20th. Tickets are required and space is limited. Register at Eventbrite.

Gina will teach you the sounds of many of the birds we hear this time of year.
We will start at 7:30 a.m. and plan to walk about 1.5 miles at a moderately slow pace. Hikes typically last 3 hours.

All participants, including children, must be registered individually, and have approved the Covid-19 policy and liability waiver through Eventbrite. Details on where to meet will be emailed to participants before the event. Drop-ins will not be allowed for this hike.

This hike is geared toward adults and older children interested in learning more about the birds of San Mateo County’s only natural preserve. Note that Edgewood’s many narrow trails cannot accommodate strollers.

Heavy rain cancels hikes.

See our calendar or events page for specific dates and where to meet.
