Birding in Marin Field Trip Series
2016 Field Trip Series
The popular Birding in Marin series led buy Jim White and Bob Battagin will continue on the third Saturday of every month throughout 2016 (except trip scheduled on December 3 due to Christmas Bird Counts). Each trip takes us to a seasonal birding hotspot in Marin with participants likely to see 200 species of birds during the year. These trips help participants learn about birds while relaxing in the company of fellow birders. We always enjoy ourselves!
For those of you who do not know these excellent leaders, Bob has birded West Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area for 17 years. He has led field trips for several Bay Area Audubon Societies and has contributed monthly birding articles to the Plumas Audubon Society’s newsletter for the past 13 years. Jim has retired from rocket engineering, teaching and general contracting and has been an avid birder for many years. Jim says he was tutored and inspired by the late great Rich Stallcup and the birds.
The trips begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until mid-afternoon. Bring bins, scopes, and lunch, dress in layers, carpool if possible, and expect to walk 3 miles.
