Bidwell Park is one of the largest city parks in the United States, with a range of habitat types and recreational uses. Starting at Horseshoe Lake, we will hike about 4 miles round-trip of the Yahi Trail along Big Chico Creek. This stretch of rich riparian habitat provides excellent viewing opportunities of many riparian and oak woodland plant and animal species, and it has some of the best winter birding in Bidwell Park. Common sightings include Black Phoebe, Hermit Thrush, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Spotted Towhee, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Acorn Woodpecker, and Bushtit. Many other species are possible, and it's always worth a walk down this trail to find out! Wear comfortable hiking shoes and layers, and bring water and snacks. This trip is also offered on Sunday morning with a different leader.
