Birding by Ear (Conifer forests)

Saturday May 4, 2019
7:00AM – 12:00PM (or thereabouts)
Leader: Meet in the parking lot of the Rood Government Center, 950 Maidu Avenue, Nevada City to carpool.Rudy Darling (530-272-6504, rdarling@sbbmail.com)Twenty-five miles round trip driving. Easy walking on level ground. Mostly standing and listening.

Breeding season is the best time to study bird song. We will visit several habitat types up Hwy 20 from Nevada City. There we will learn how to make sense out of all the twitters and tweets emanating from those frustrating invisible birds in the forest. Species we might hear include Hermit Thrush, Mountain Quail, Pacific-slope, Dusky and Hammond’s Flycatchers, Pileated Woodpecker, and Fox Sparrow, as well as the usual common species. Call Rudy in the event of bad weather.
