Our 2018 Birds of the Bay Area calendar

makes a great holiday gift!

Our 2018 Birds of the Bay Area photo calendar makes a unique and memorable holiday gift — for friends, family, or for yourself! Whenever the winter cold or national news makes you feel down, one glance at the calendar’s Burrowing Owls, warblers, and eagles will lighten your heart. The calendar features full-color photos by over two dozen of the Bay Area’s most talented bird photographers. Enjoy White-tailed Kites, Western Bluebirds, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, blizzards of shorebirds, Ospreys carrying fish, and more. Just $20 plus tax-shipping. Order securely online or stop by our Berkeley office on Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday mornings.


The calendar is not available at Amazon or other retail stores, just through Golden Gate Audubon! So it truly is a one-of-a-kind gift that will be treasured by your friends and family. Who knows… it may even inspire some of them to start birding. 🙂
