DESCRIPTION: Enjoy a leisurely walk through many different habitats; from grassy park, reed lined pond, backyard bird feeders, and finally out to the Morro Strand State Park Beach. RED-WINGED and BREWER’S BLACKBIRDS visit many of the feeders and BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERONS are lurking in the trees around the pond. There are a variety of breeding and migrant birds in the willows along the trail north and south. The nuttalli race of WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW is often seen up close. There is a possibility of seasonal pools on the beach.  When present, these pools can have an amazing variety of species that are easy to view! Look for GULLS, TERNS and SHOREBIRDS.  Walk will be on a flat trail and beach with some areas of deep sand. Expect to walk 1 – 2 miles at a slow pace.

Bring a hat, water, snacks, sunscreen, binoculars and field guides (if you have them) and dress in layers to accommodate wind and changing weather. Sturdy shoes are recommended.  Restrooms are available. Rain cancels.
