Join the Yolo Audubon Society and The Friends of West Pond for a two-hour birding and botanizing walk along West Pond in Davis. The walks are held monthly on the first Wednesday. This field trip is free to the public. The West Pond area is a very comfortable locale for birding, with level paved paths. Plan to walk/stand for 2 hours; participants can leave the walk at any time. The walk is approximately one mile on flat paths of the greenbelt. Benches are located along the path. Bathrooms are available at UCD Medical Bldg. at the north end of greenbelt (Covell Blvd.).
During the recent Great Backyard Bird Count, white-throated sparrow, fox sparrow, wood duck and hooded merganser were seen at the pond.
The leaders will greet participants at 9:00 AM at the greenbelt gazebo on the west end of Isle Royale Lane. Please bring binoculars and water.
