SA52 Chasing Recent Rarities 2 | 2017
Time - 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): George Ziminsky
Over the years, we have recorded an impressive array of rarities during the festival, and particularly rare birds known as “accidentals”. These have included Magnificent Hummingbird, Brown Shrike, and Smith’s Longspur. Last year, a Humboldt County first record Royal Tern showed up. We’ve always coordinated a last-minute impromptu trip to see these species so this year we are planning ahead! Our rare bird board we keep in the lobby of the Arcata Community Center will guide where this trip is going to go and what we’ll try to see. No guarantees of a “mega”, but the leader will chase the range of desired species. (Repeats Sunday #SU77 as a GOLD trip).
