Description: When those rainy winter days keep you indoors, why not use some of that down time to plan your spring hummingbird garden? Itís the perfect time of year to order seeds, hummingbird feeders, and flowering plants from specialty nurseries. Learn about how you can turn your yard into a hummingbird roadside diner, with easy plants and flowers to help Rufous Hummingbirds along their spring northward migration.

Join us for a Hummingbird Flowers and Feeders workshop at Newell Open Space Preserve and for a warming bird walk up to the Eucalyptus grove. White-tailed Kites, Golden Eagles and Northern Harriers are frequent visitors to the preserve. The lush oak forest hosts resident Annaís Hummingbirds.

Directions: From Vallejo, take the 29 North to American Canyon. Turn right, going east, onto Donaldson Way East. Drive approximately one mile to the end, and make a left at Newell Drive. The parking lot will be on the right. Bathroom is available at the parking lot. Parking is free. Please dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water and binoculars if you have them. Steady rain may cancel; please e-mail the walk coordinator if there are any questions.

There is a moderate up-hill grade to the Eucalyptus grove where White-tailed Kites are frequently seen hunting and roosting. Sightings have also included Golden Eagles and Northern Harriers.
