FR29 Birding North to Trinidad with Lunch at Seascape | 2019 | $25
Time - 9:15 am - 3:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Gary Bloomfield
A gentle walk while looking for migrant spring passerines like Pacific Slope Flycatcher or Black-capped Chickadee as well as any warblers that have arrived in the Blue Lake riparian habitats along the Mad River. Here there will be Allen’s and Anna’s Hummingbirds and potential Rufous Hummingbird. This is the only chance for White-throated Swifts, a new arrival in this area. We will visit Elk Head to see a Common Murre colony, and the sitka spruce forest on the way out with Pacific Wrens and possible kinglets and Brown Creeper. Prepare for wet ground and some variable terrain. There will be restrooms at the Blue Lake Fish Hatchery and opportunity to use a spotting scope at Elk Head near Trinidad, where we will end with a no host late lunch at the Seascape Restaurant.
