FR21 Dawn Chorus – Arcata Marsh 3 | 2017
Time - 6:30 am - 8:30 am
Trip Leader(s): Chet Ogan
The Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary is the jewel in the crown of Humboldt birding. This restored estuary habitat supports ducks, herons, sparrows, chickadees, roosting shorebirds, and many more species. This pre-breakfast trip is planned to catch the dawn chorus in full swing at the Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary. Birds are on the move at this time, so there will be plenty of birding action. The willows along the trails house the songbirds and the reed beds support chattering Marsh Wrens. This trip is for everyone and will provide an introduction to the variety of birds at the marsh. Return to the Community Center for some “shade grown” coffee and local pastries from the “Godwit Cafe”, sponsored by our local Audubon chapter, to prepare for your next day trip. Terrain is mostly flat on maintained trails. We will not stop for food and there will be opportunity to use a spotting scope.
Bookings are closed for this event.
