      EVENT DETAILS
      Backyard Birds for Beginners at McClellan Ranch Preserve

      Learn your backyard birds on this beginners' bird walk! The birds in your backyard are the same species that visit Audubon’s bird feeders at McClellan Ranch. With the help of our volunteers, you’ll observe the birds that come to the feeders and learn how to use Merlin, a free bird identification app that is helpful for new birders. We’ll then take a short stroll together along the Stevens Creek Trail, looking for and identifying birds. Afterwards, we’ll email you a list of the bird species observed and a guide to birding resources.
