Where have all our birds gone to?


Coyote Hills is well-known for the wide variety of birds that can be seen there. Here is a group from the Audobon Society.

Goshawks can be seen regularly near the propsed development area.

Black-Shouldered Kites are a frequent site in the park. The latter photo was taken on the edge of Crandall Creek directly adjacent to the proposed project.

There is a Red-Tailed Hawk's nest on the site that has been used for the last two years. Homes are proposed within a few hundred feet of this nest. The photo of the chick is from May of 2005. The parents have been seen in the nest this year (2006).

A pair of Peregrine Falcon's can be see occasionally at the Ardenwood overcrossing of Alameda Creek. This one was observed from the underside of the overcrossing.

Marsh Hawk. Also known as a Norther Harrier. Easily seen within the park.

Turkey Vulture
