We're Going Birding

FRI., JUNE 9 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (For ages 5 to 12)

Local birder, environmental educator and founder of the Bird School Project, Darrow Feldstein will lead a 60 minute bird walk. Kids will learn about the many species of birds found right here in our Los Gatos community. Each participant will be given a pair of optics to borrow along with a bird check-off sheet. Space is limited, so call soon to reserve your spot.

All About Owls

WED., JUNE 28 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (For ages 5 to 12)

Come to the Los Gatos Birdwatcher and learn about owls. Owls are mysterious birds usually found only at night as they hunt after dark in search of rodents. You'll learn how they find their food and what they eat and will dissect your own owl pellet. We will also have "Olive" a live Western Screech Owl here at the store for you to meet. Olive comes to you from the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo.

Why Birds Build Nests

WED., JULY 12 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (For ages 5 to 12)

This class will be held inside the store. All birds lay eggs when starting a family, but did you know that different birds make different kinds of nests? Some use mud, while others use moss and even pet hair. Some birds nest inside of holes and others build their nests on top of trees. We will have many different types of nests to share.

Make a Suet Feeder

WED., JULY 26 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (For ages 5 to 12)

Suet is a type of food that provides birds with lots of calories and energy. Birds enjoy suet when raising young, migrating and getting through the winter. You will make your own suet feeder you can take home and hang outside for your backyard birds. You'll also learn about the birds that you can attract with your new suet feeder.

Upcoming Tours
Santa Cruz Hot Spots
8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

We will head to the coast and spend the day birding in and around Natural Bridges State Beach. Natural Bridges is known for its fall concentration of Monarch Butterflies. While this is not the time of year to find these beautiful butterflies, it's a great time to find birds enjoying the breeding season along the coast. There is a lot of habitat to explore from meadows to coastline, as a result we will see a variety of species. Biologist Ryan Phillips and Lisa will co-lead this tour.<

Fee: $65 and includes park entrance fee and transportation.
