Birding with William Legge and David Wiechers
Register HERE for this Field Trip
Registration required for this trip. 15 Participants max. Registration opens on August 13 at 8 AM.
Join William and David for the first of four fall migration field trips at Rodeo Lagoon. This is their long-time “patch,” which never seems to disappoint birders with daily variations in species and the chance of an unusual sighting. On this trip, our group will be targeting Elegant Terns and Parasitic Jaegers, migrating shorebirds, and western passerine migrants including warblers. We will begin the morning with a Sea Watch at 7:30 AM from Rodeo Beach. Those arriving later may join us at 8:30 AM for a circuit of the lagoon.
DIRECTIONS: Head south on Hwy 101 and take the last Sausalito exit just before the Golden Gate Bridge. At the exit stop sign, turn right and go under the freeway, then follow the road down to the left. Within 300 feet turn left at the sign to the Marin Headlands (This is the only available left turn before you begin the descent into Sausalito). You should see the tunnel with the five-minute light. Proceed through the tunnel on Bunker Rd to the Rodeo Lagoon Parking Lot at the end. Meet by the bridge over the channel to the beach or join MAS birders with scopes along the nearby beach area.
