Leaders: Peter Thomas, Chris Staurovsky, and others
This will be our used to be annual (interrupted by Covid for 2 years) walk along Agua Dulce Creek in the Lagunas. We will visit forest, meadow, and riparian habitats just off the Sunrise Highway at approximately 6,000 feet elevation. A major target to be sought will be Olive-sided Flycatchers, sitting atop the tallest available snag, singing “Quick, Three Beers”. Other possible birds include Mountain Quail (most often heard “Quirk” or “T’wook”), Band-tailed Pigeons, Western Bluebirds, Brown Creepers, Mountain Chickadees, and Pygmy Nuthatches. Please dress for possible changes in the weather, and bring water.
A requirement for participation at this point is being more than 2 weeks beyond the second vaccination (Pfizer/Moderna) or the single dose (Johnson and Johnson) at the time of the trip. Recent CDC recommendations do not currently require masks.
Participation is capped at 8.
