Fall Migration Hotspots

October 27, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

No sleeping in will be possible for those who want to join Derek and Bob on this trip to some of the best-known migrant hotspots in Marin. Our plan for the day will depend on what birds have been seen in the area. Point Reyes has proven to be one of the greatest migrant traps on our continent with more than half of all North American birds (at least 502 species) seen there.

We will be looking in the areas of Drakes Beach and the Fish Docks/Chimney Rock. We may also stop to check the fields and trees surrounding some of the ranches in the area as well as the more inland riparian area around the Inverness Tennis Club. Come help us find something rare and unexpected. Fall birders in these areas are rarely disappointed! This time of year, as Rich Stallcup said, The Outer Point never gets old. It is never the same.

We will meet at Whitehouse Pool and bird that area as participants gather before carpooling to the Outer Point. Dress in layers (plan for wind and fog), and bring a hat, sunscreen, water, and lunch. Heavy rain cancels.

Directions: From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take the Sir Francis Drake exit 20.4 miles to Olema. Turn right onto Hwy 1 and go 2 miles. Before the green bridge, turn left (continuing on Sir Francis Drake Blvd.) and drive 0.7 mile. Look for the White House Pool sign and parking lot on the right.
