Guided Bird Walk along Rose Creek
November 5, 2022 - 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
ROSE CREEK is a treasure in Pacific Beach, popular with Bikers on the East side, a quiet, shaded walking path on the West side. Once a month, on Saturday, Friends of Rose Creek lead a Guided Bird Walk along the Mud Flats, winding Estuary and into the Riparian area full of trees and song birds. Recently we’ve seen baby ducks, seagulls and Ospreys chicks. More unusual sightings; Northern Shoveler, Red Knot, and Black-headed Grosbeak. Join Kyle and Laurie at Mission Bay High School. FACULTY PARKING Lot along Rose Creek, off Grand Ave.
At this time of year, the Snow Birds are in residence. These species summer in Alaska and Canada and then head south for the winter. Rose Creek is very popular among a number of winter species.
At Rose Creek any day is good for treats and surprises. Sunset will be at 5:50 PM.
The amazing Kyle will be leading our walk. Check out this create article in the Beach and Bay Press about the Guided Bird Walks.
