The Birds of Tilden and Wildcat

Who needs the Telegraph Hill parrots?  In the East Bay, we have many more birds gracing our backyards and parks.

This summer, the East Bay Parks District has organized a photography exhibit to check them out – before you spot them all in the wild.

The exhibit showcases the work of Jeff Robinson, who photographed all the birds listed in the 1988 wildlife census for Tilden and Wildcat Canyon Regional Parks.  He also snapped photos of other wildlife commonly found here.

Through August, these images are displayed at the Environmental Education Center in Tilden Nature Area (map).  The Center’s hours are 10am-5pm daily (closed Mondays).  Photos are also for sale, to benefit the Regional Parks Foundation.

If you can’t make the exhibit itself, then take a look at this virtual gallery and run the slide show.  Robinson’s images are very special!
