All-day trip geared towards participants with some birding experience but unfamiliar with common winter birds of the Pacific coast and/or with birding at Bodega Bay, a world-class birding location. Harbor mudflats, ocean beach, and rocky headland for ducks, grebes, loons, gulls and shorebirds in one compact area – Bodega Bay, Harbor and Head, and Doran Beach. Winter weather can be surprisingly good, but be prepared for cold and wet with layers, hat and gloves. Only a major rainstorm will cancel the trip. Easy walks and good bird photo opportunities around the harbor. Space is limited: Contact leader Chris Dunford [530 753-9073; christopher.j.dunford at gmail dot com] to reserve a seat and for details of transport options and meeting time/location. From Davis, a two-hour drive each way; you should be back by 6 pm.
