TH12 Snow Camp and Bald Mtn Rd. – NEW | 2018
Time - 7:30 am - 2:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Max Brodie
A first for Godwit Days, this trip will explore the inland foothills of Humboldt County along Bald Mountain and Snow Camp roads. The trip will bird through mixed conifer forest interspersed with open prairies and oak woodlands as we climb from sea level to 3,500’. As we traverse the ridges we will scan the open skies for raptors. The oak groves host several species including Acorn Woodpecker, Western Bluebird, and White-breasted Nuthatch. Spring will bring along a variety of other early migrant species to this beautiful mid-elevation habitat. All of the birding will be done roadside; spotting scopes are highly recommended. Pack warm clothes, a snack, lunch, and water. There are no designated bathrooms along this route. The roads on this trip are narrow and pullouts are not always where the birds are. For this reason we ask that that you please consider carpooling to the greatest extent possible.
Bookings are closed for this event.
