Explore many birding locations at the Seashore during breeding season. See songbirds, water birds, and raptors in their preferred habitats.
Explore the varied habitats of Point Reyes National Seashore at the peak of the bird breeding season.
Around Bear Valley we will look for resident and neotropical breeding species, including Pacific-slope and several other flycatchers, vireos, sparrows and warblers.
Grebes, loons and other waterbirds will be our focus at Drakes Beach. Osprey, Red-shouldered Hawk and Northern Harrier are raptors that frequent these areas.
The class may visit other coastal locations as well to view seabirds. We will meet at the picnic area near the Bear Valley Visitor Center and car caravan to our different destinations. The class will focus on identification and bird behavior in a series of short walks.
