Virtual Talk: Fall Birds of the East Bay Hills with Bob Lewis

Monday, October 24, 2022

The Garden is pleased to host master birder Bob Lewis for this online program.

The Bay Area is rich in varying habitats that are home to many bird species. Some birds are here throughout the year, but fall marks the return of a number of species that had gone elsewhere to breed. We’ll talk about many bird species that can be found in our gardens at this time of year, with some discussion of things one can do to enrich these bird habitats and attract birds, as well as the impacts of drought and climate change. The Zoom talk includes many illustrations of our local birds.
