Don’t miss the chance to begin your day with a guided bird walk through the Frontera Thicket as you don’t know the treat you may be in for… warblers, the elusive Summer tanagers, the long-staying Tropical parula, cardinals, Green jays, and Altamira orioles. The water feature is welcoming an assortment of hummers and others, and a well-stocked feading station brings everyone together (human and other) for a chance to enjoy fruit and bugs!
This week, Tom Pendleton leads our Feb. Bird Walks at 9a.m. till 11a.m. on Wed. and Fri. Tom is a southern gentleman who lives in Mission and visits Frontera often to add to his knowledge of Valley birds and wildlife. He will be sharing his id of the birds along with insights from his birding experiences.
The week of Feb. 22, Dan Jones and Pat DeWenter will lead our walks. Dan and Pat are accomplished birders, as well as patient instructors with experiences and stories to share with every level of birder.
Walks are the best deal in town on Wed. and Fri. mornings — free to members and $3 to others (includes a $5 daypass to the preserve).
SUNDAY, FEB. 21 …MACRO PHOTO WALK WITH MICHAEL DELESANTRO
Those who attended last month’s photo walk with Michael learned one thing: MAKE SURE YOU DON’T MISS THESE WORKSHOPS! Held the third Sunday morning of each month, the workshops cover a different photo topic, and this month the technique known as “macro photography” is investigated… how to capture the world in its own scale on film or digital format. For instance, a bug is a bug is a bug is a bug…
Register in advance by calling Frontera Audubon at (956) 968- 3275 as workshop is limited to 15. Admission is free to members; $3 to others (including a $5 daypass).
