Join us for a weekend exploring various bird habitats of Del Norte County, California, an area that’s rich in bird diversity: this small county has a bird list of over 420. We’ll spend one day on the coastal plain and shoreline searching for species such as Black Oystercatcher, Tufted Puffin, Marbled Murrelet, Rhinoceros Auklet, and Pigeon Guillemot and the next at inland sites, where we will observe how the avifauna changes with increasing elevation. On our trip we’ll seek out Pacific Wren, Varied Thrush, Sooty Grouse, Mountain Quail, Townsend’s Solitaire, White-headed Woodpecker, Dusky and Hammond’s Flycatchers, Green-tailed Towhee, and others.
