Fall shorebirding in the San Francisco Bay Area is world class. By mid-August, hundreds of thousands of “wind birds” have winged their way from their northern breeding grounds to the globally significant San Francisco Bay – a key portion of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network .
In three two-hour Zoom lectures, we will focus on the amazing evolutionary adaptations, life histories and identification techniques of the 30 plus species of shorebirds that reside, pass through in migration or overwinter in California. On three Sunday field trips we’ll have opportunities to view and focus on this order but not at all ignore the myriad of other fall migrants and resident birds that we will encounter.
- Three 2-hour Wednesday classes by Zoom, August 11, 18, 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
- Three 3-hour Sunday field trips, August 15, 22, 29. Some may be in the afternoon.
- Lectures are via Zoom. Field trip times and locations will be announced in class.
