SA42 Humboldt Big Day – GOLD | 2020 | $80
Time - 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Scott Carey & Mary Severdia
There is no better way to experience the variety of spring birds in Humboldt. Join the Big Day team in a passenger van that accommodates the entire group as it attempts to exceed the 100 species mark! Travel up and down the coast visiting our area’s best spots. This is a fast-paced field trip, making several quick stops to record as many species of birds as possible. Waterfowl and shorebirds over the bay, herons and egrets at the Arcata Marsh, seabirds offshore, riparian passerines and of course some Marbled Godwits will be seen. In recent years we have even begun to exceed the 125 mark as locations such as the Blue Lake Cottonwoods or Elkhead are visited. A sack lunch is included, notify us at [email protected] about any dietary restrictions. Bring your own reusable water bottle to fill at the Community Center before we leave. Restrooms will be available at some stops. There will be opportunities to use a spotting scope if you have one, or share with others if not.
