When: Sun., Aug. 30 2015
Redwood Region Audubon Society is sponsoring a free birding trip to the Trinity Alps Wilderness on Sunday, August 30. An underappreciated phenomenon is the use of brushy, high-country habitats by dispersing and migrating birds in the fall. Ken Burton will lead an easy 6-mile hike through 16-year-old burned forest and unburned meadow habitats at an elevation of about 5,000 feet. Last year this hike produced an amazing number and variety of birds, including a Williamson’s Sapsucker. It’s a long drive, so the meeting time will be very early; all participants must call Ken at (707) 499-1146 for specifics. Group members will meet to carpool at the California Welcome Center at 1635 Heindon Road, Arcata at the time specified by Ken.
