From Fairfax, drive up Bolinas Road to the entrance to Marin Municipal Water District lands, Sky Oaks Road. From the Sky Oaks Road entrance gate, drive 1 mile, park at the designated parking area for Pine Point Fire Road. Proceed to Pine Point Fire Road. At the top of Lake Bon Tempe at the turning basin, look for a dead tree. Hummingbirds enjoy perching on this dead tree, to catch the morning sun.
The female Anna's hummingbird is remarkably calm; the male, by contrast, is a pugnacious defender of territory against other hummingbirds and larger birds.
