Sonoma Ecology Center- Sugarloaf Woodpeckers

October 8, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

“Join Sugarloaf docent Dana Glei in a 2-mile hike (250 ft elevation change) focusing on some of the most social birds at Sugarloaf: woodpeckers. Learn how to identify them by sight, sound, flight pattern, and/or behavior. We are almost certain to see acorn woodpeckers, and might be able to spot Northern flickers, pileated woodpeckers, Nuttall’s woodpeckers, Downy woodpeckers, Hairy woodpeckers, or Red-breasted sapsuckers. We’ll meet at the White Barn. From there, we’ll start off hiking toward the Observatory, continue on Lower Bald Mt. to Creekside Trail, and then up Hillside Trail, where we will stop at the lookout vista. We’ll make our return to the White Barn via Hillside.

Tickets are $10 general, $5 for students, youth (12-17 year olds; must be accompanied by an adult), Sugarloaf members, Sugarloaf volunteers, and free for children under 12 years old. Bring at least a quart of water, wear layers, comfortable shoes, and sun protection. If you have them, we recommend bringing binoculars, scope, camera, bird identification guides, and if you’d like, a snack. If you use iNaturalist or would like to learn how to use it, make sure it’s already installed on your phone before you arrive to the park. Parking fees apply.”
