Stanford Arboretum and Cactus Garden (Palo Alto)

Tweet, chirp, chatter, shriek, drum-drum-drum: a cacophony of bird sounds and songs will greet you upon your first step onto the oak and eucalyptus tree-lined paved path to Stanford’s Arizona Cactus Garden and Mausoleum. As we stroll to the garden, we'll look for Hooded Orioles, Red-shouldered Hawks, Acorn Woodpeckers, Hummingbirds, Western Bluebirds and Dark-eyed Juncos.
