Witness tens of thousands of shorebirds gathered on the mudflats of North Humboldt Bay. Approaching high breeding condition, these northbound Arctic and subarctic nesters swarm and vocalize in a manner that cannot be experienced at other seasons. This has become a featured trip of Godwit Days, and it is also offered on Saturday (see event #SA36). The number of birds on the move is staggering and can be experienced daily during this northward spring migration push. Shorebird species expected include: Western and Least Sandpiper, Dunlin, Marbled Godwit, Willet, Dowitcher, Black-bellied Plover and American Avocet.


This event is fully booked.
