This reservoir on upper Novato Creek is a great
place to see a variety of winter birds. We’ll stroll along the shore and enjoy
flocks of ducks, while keeping an eye open for raptors overhead. We often see
golden eagles here, and now and again a peregrine makes an appearance. The
trees here are always a good place to see a variety of woodpeckers, and there
are usually plenty of mixed flocks of songbirds passing through as well. This
walk is for adults. We request that no animals (except service animals) attend.
Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the
