With David Wimpfheimer
By focusing our visit on the Point Reyes Headlands and staying overnight at the Historic Lifeboat Station, we’ll have a unique opportunity to experience this special area and its avian inhabitants. On Saturday, a series of short walks may take us to the Lighthouse, Chimney Rock and Drakes Beach. Depending on weather patterns, many migrant warblers, sparrows and other passerines concentrate in the surrounding cypress groves and willow patches. Ranch ponds and marsh habitat hold shorebirds while scoters, loons and other waterbirds rest on Drakes Bay – There is almost always a surprise. We’ll spend the night in this dramatic setting and watch a digital presentation on the birds of Point Reyes. Sunday morning may find us visiting some of the same locations as the previous day, but we may also take a walk at Abbotts Lagoon. The variety of sandpipers, ducks, terns and other waterbirds there in the fall can be dramatic. Many raptors take advantage of this rich feeding area, as well. Accommodations, with optional Friday evening arrival, are included at the Historic Lifeboat Station at Chimney Rock.
