Birding with Geoffrey and Friends of Uplands Park Sun. March 24 at 8:00 a.m.

From the Newell’s:

This Sunday, March 24 Geoffrey Newell will once again be leading the bird walk for the Friends of Uplands Park. Please meet at 8:00 a.m. in the large parking lot out at the end of Cattle Point. We will begin by viewing ocean birds, then go inland to search for birds there as well. Springtime bird song identification can be very elevating! We hope to see you there!

Here is the bird list for our last trip to Cattle Point and inland into the park. Thank you for accompanying us. It was a great pleasure to be with such pleasant and enthousiastic company. Mark down on your calendars 8:00 a.m. Cattle Point, Sunday, March 24, 2013. Hope to see you there!
