This all-day trip is limited to 12 participants with priority given to those 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 major wind or rainstorm will cancel the trip. Easy walks and good bird photo opportunities around the harbor.
Contact leader Chris Dunford [530-753-9073; christopher.j.dunford at gmail.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.
Yolo Audubon Society field trips are free and open to the public. Some trips may be limited by number of participants if stated in the description. Car-pooling is encouraged, but all rides are private arrangements between driver and riders.
