  • Casual
  • Mileage: 2.0 mi

Meet at 8am at the parking lot at Juanita Bay.

Expect to spend 2-3 hours wandering the trails, looking for birds and listening to their calls. We will practice looking at key characteristics like shape, size, color patterns, and behaviors. The merlin app may be helpful in identifying species and a bird book either hard copy or as an app will give more information.  

Don't forget to look down and find some ferns on these field trips.
