Down For the Count: Exploring Bird Diversity at Point Reyes
The Christmas Bird Count monitors over two hundred species and the Seashore ranks near the top of all counts. Join us to practice and enjoy!
For over fifty years the Point Reyes Christmas Bird Count (CBC) has been an annual tradition monitoring the winter populations of over two hundred species of birds here. Point Reyes National Seashore and adjoining areas rank in the top ten of over two thousand counts nationwide in terms of species diversity.
This remarkable accomplishment is mostly the result of the wide variety of habitats here. We will enjoy some of this amazing avian diversity in a number of short walks. This will be a moderately fast paced outing with the focus of seeing a lot of birds, but allowing time to learn bird identification by sight and sound.
