Walker Ranch has long been a popular birding area. It has great riparian and chaparral/oak habitats and prospects for migrating spring warblers, flycatchers, orioles, hummingbirds, etc. We can also see swallows, parakeets, thrashers, sparrows and raptors, possibly an owl. The trails are good and very scenic. Dress in layers. Insects are rarely a problem. Carry water and bring your lunch.

Meet at 8:30 a.m. Leader: Chuck Bragg (310-454-9662)
Family Guide: Good for all ages.

Map to location (also shows Wilson Cyn & O’Melvany Park)

Directions] San Diego Freeway (#405) north from Santa Monica. From where it merges with Golden State Freeway (#5) in northern San Fernando Valley, continue 3.1 miles, turn onto the Antelope Valley Freeway (#14), then 3.3 miles farther north to the Placerita Canyon Rd. exit.   Turn right (east) and drive about 3-3.5 miles up the canyon (the gate to the lower portion of Placerita Cyn. will be on the right at about 1.5 miles) to a dirt parking lot on the right and the gate to Walker Ranch.   Don’t block the gate with your car.
Meet in the dirt parking lot or just past the gate at 8:30 a.m.
Leader: Chuck Bragg (310-454-9662)
