In spring, the Bay Area blooms; after regenerative winter rains, the warmer, sunnier weather bring forth wave after wave of colorful songbird migrants, and the wooded canyons of the East Bay hills fill with bird song. Suddenly many different species including warblers, vireos, flycatchers, thrushes, hummingbirds, buntings, grosbeaks, and tanagers are moving through. Some species are common, and stay in the area to breed, while others are scarce and pass through in short windows of time. The more difficult and sought-after spring songbirds will be the focus of this class.
Recordings of the lecture presentations will be available to class participants for a limited period of time.
- Lecture Thursday April 7: 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
- Field trip Sunday April 10 (time and location will be announced during class)
- $40 for GGAS members, $60 for non-members.
Once this class is full, you may sign up to be on a waiting list.
