Summer Breeding Bird Workshop with Ryan Phillips

8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

We will spend the morning within the Mt. Hamilton Mountain Range below the Lick Observatory. Ryan will concentrate on the activities involved with our local breeders. Away from suburbia, this environment will be alive with breeding bird activity including bird song, begging chicks and pair bonding. We will be on the look out for raptors, orioles, hummingbirds, bluebirds, magpies, quail and kingbirds. To minimize our impact on the environment we ask that folks be willing to carpool from the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. Lisa will also join in on the fun. Call the store to sign-up, 408-358-9453. Fee: $45

Why Birds Build Nests

FRIDAY, JUNE 14 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

(For ages 5 – 12)

This class will be held inside the store. All birds lay eggs when starting a family, but did you know that different birds make different kinds of nests? Some use mud, while others use moss and even pet hair. Some birds nest inside of holes and others build their nests on top of trees. We will have many different types of nests to share.

All About Owls

WEDNESDAY, JULY 24 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

(For ages 5 – 12)

Owls are mysterious birds usually found only at night as they hunt after dark in search of rodents. Because of that we have created a wonderful class. Come to the Los Gatos Birdwatcher and learn about owls; learn how they find their food and what they eat. You will get to dissect your own owl pellet. And we invite you to come meet “Olive”, a live Western Screech Owl here at the store from the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo.

We're Going Birding
