DATE: Friday, March 24, 2023
TIME:   9:00 am to 11:30 am
LEADER:     Robbie Revel
CO-LEADER: Bob Revel

Trip is limited to 12 participants - Signups will be taken for 24 hours. 12 participants will be randomly selected. The remainder will be put on standby status in case of cancellations. 

Our leisurely walk will include a visit to both sides of the rock to observe cormorants, pelicans, sea ducks, different species of gulls and a variety of migratory shorebirds. Breeding plumage will be on display for our coastal breeders and winter migrants could be showing some as well before they migrate north. We will look for our resident Peregrine Falcons as they begin their nesting season as well as land birds occupying the coastal sage scrub on the rock. Walk will be about 1 mile along a flat dirt path and pavement.

Wear a hat, sturdy walking shoes and dress in layers as it can be cool and windy. Bring binoculars, sunscreen, water and snacks as needed. Scopes and cameras are welcomed. Restrooms are available in the parking area. Rain cancels
