Field Trips

March-April 2018
Western Tanager Field Trip Listings

By Nick Freeman

Field trips often require more driving and time in the field than do our bird walks. If you do not have convenient e-mail to reserve a trip, you may always substitute a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) and provide your daytime phone number. We do not sell, trade, or re-use contact information; cell and email simply improve our chances of contacting you at home and in the field. No pets or unapproved small children (under 12), please. Bird walks are better-suited for most children. Contact information WILL BE released to others inquiring about carpooling unless requested otherwise. Envelopes for donations to support Los Angeles Audubon and its field trips will be distributed on some non-fee trips. Please support your LAAS field trips. MAIL RESERVATION FEES TO: L.A.

Mary and Nick Freeman lead. Friday (April 27) evening in Bishop, a grouse biologist will hopefully be available to present a slide show on the Sage Grouse, at the BLM headquarters building. She’s really knowledgeable! We will meet at the Crowley lek turnoff (“the Green Church” at 34 Benton Crossing Rd, Mammoth Lakes – GPS address) very early on Saturday for Sage Grouse photos and viewing, and later possible Black-backed Woodpecker and Evening Grosbeak! Sunday, plan to meet in Bishop at Jack’s Restaurant (437 N Main St) for Sooty Grouse, Grey-crowned Rosy-Finch, Bank Swallow, and perhaps Chukar.

An e-mailer will be sent out to the participants who have signed-up (paid) for this trip, including some hotels. Arrange your own lodging in Bishop. Net profits go towards the Ralph Schreiber Grant Fund.
