Bring your favorite pair of binoculars, or a zoom-capable camera, and enjoy the beauty of our North Coast birds. In late August, we observe the gradual disappearance of tropical summer breeders, and the return of overwintering birds from the interior and northern reaches of the continent. Most of the birds we’ll see and hear in the Botanic Garden are birds you might see in your own back yard. Learning the common birds around Humboldt Bay, and what kind of habitat they prefer, can be immensely satisfying and fun. You don’t have to know anything about birds to come on this walk. We’ll take our time and discuss how to identify the birds we see.
