Point Reyes National Seashore
September 20 @ 8:00 am - September 22 @ 5:00 pm
Point Reyes National Seashore is well-known for it’s 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 and Palm 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, Drakes Beach, Olema Marsh and the famous historic ranches along the way. We will camp Friday and Saturday night at Olema Campground.
