Trip Leader(s): Max Brodie
This trip will take participants 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. All of the birding will be done roadside; spotting scopes are highly recommended. This event has turned up some interesting species in the past!
Pack warm clothes, a snack and plenty of 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 will be carpooling to the greatest extent possible.
