     This is a great trip for folks just starting to learn about birds, as well as intermediate level-birders looking to develop their skills and deepen their understanding of Californian birds.

      For beginners, we'll practice recognizing major groups of birds, and learn how to identify the most common species, as well as how to make the best use of field guides.

     With more advanced birders, we can look for target species, explore habitats of special interest, and work on identification of more challenging groups. 

     With all our groups we make sure to cover broader topics as well, including the phenomenon of migration, why birds sing, and their roles in the ecosystem. Birdlife is a fascinating lens through which to study ecology and evolution.
