Point Reyes National Seashore
October 6 - October 8
Point Reyes National Seashore is well-known for its excellent birding. The seashore and surrounding areas offer many different habitats from grasslands, estuaries, and coastal scrub to forests. The projection of the Point Reyes peninsula some 10 miles seaward from the “mainland” makes Point Reyes National Seashore a landing spot for many vagrants – birds that may have made errors in navigation and thus are unexpected in this area. Each fall these vagrants seek out resting spots along the peninsula on their way south. Some of these rarities have included Black-throated Blue Warbler, American Redstart, White-throated Sparrow, Palm Warbler and Prothonotary Warbler. We will visit these vagrant traps (resting spots), such as the Fish Docks, the lighthouse rocks and cliff areas, Abbott’s Lagoon, Tomales Bay, Drake’s Beach, Bear Valley, Olema Marsh and the famous historic ranches along the way. We will camp Friday and Saturday night at Olema Campground. Tent Camping only. If you have an RV or trailer, you’ll need to make your own reservations. Please contact Jennifer at 530-345-9356 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in going. Trip is limited to 12.
