McClellan Ranch Preserve for Beginners

This event will start outside the SCVAS Nature Shop in Cupertino where we will focus on the birds that visit our feeders such as Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Oak Titmouse and Nuttall’s Woodpecker. We will also show you how to use Merlin Bird ID, a free bird identification app that is helpful for new birders. Then we will take a short stroll together along the paved Stevens Creek Trail, looking for and identifying birds. Afterwards, we’ll email you a list of the bird species observed and a guide to additional birding resources.
