Over 450 species of birds have been observed in the varied habitats of San Luis Obispo County. Join us for a fun adventure in a unique corner of the state. We will begin in Morro Bay State Park to explore salt marsh, eelgrass beds, and open water in search of loons, ducks, shorebirds, gulls, terns, brown and white pelicans. The adjacent trees, chaparral, hillsides and grasslands are also habitat for a huge variety of land birds. Witnessing the historic nesting Peregrine Falcons dive along the volcanic cliffs of Morro Rock is a tradition for all California birders. At Montaña de Oro State Park, we will watch oystercatchers and seabirds feed alongside seals and sea otters. A walk up Coon Creek will have us exploring riparian and chaparral communities. The pygmy forest is another unique habitat that holds many land birds. On, Sunday, we will drive inland and bird in the grasslands, alkali wetlands and oak woodlands of the Carrizo Plain. This national monument is an especially large raptor wintering area where we will look for Sandhill Crane, Golden Eagle, Prairie Falcon, Ferruginous Hawk, Burrowing Owl and Roadrunner. Accommodations are not included, but a helpful packet of information will be sent upon registration.
