SA44 Humboldt Big Day – GOLD | 2017
Time - 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Scott Carey
There is no better way to experience the variety of spring birds in Humboldt. Join the Big Day team as it attempts to exceed the 100 species mark! Travel up and down the coast by city bus visiting our area’s best spots. This is a fast-paced field trip, making several quick stops to record as many species of birds as possible. Waterfowl and shorebirds over the bay, herons and egrets at the Marsh, seabirds offshore, riparian passerines and of course some Marbled Godwits will be seen. In recent years we have even begun to exceed the 125 mark as locations such as the Blue Lake Cottonwoods or Elkhead are visited. A sack lunch is included (vegetarian choice available). Bring your own water. Restrooms will be available at some stops. There will be opportunity to use as spotting scope if you have one, or share with others if not.
