Jan. 11: Bodega Bay This all-day trip is limited to 12 participants with priority given to those with some birding experience but unfamiliar with common winter birds of the Pacific coast and/or with birding at Bodega Bay, a world-class birding location. Easy walks and good bird photo opportunities around the harbor. Reservations required; contact leader Chris Dunford at 530-753-9073 or christopher.j.dunford@gmail.com. Jan. 18: Hawks and Plovers, Robinson Road Join us for a trip to the pastures of southeastern Solano County to search for overwintering raptors & other winter visitors. We will search fields, perches and farm equipment. Prior trips have seen prairie falcons, merlins, golden eagles, ferruginous hawks, rough-legged hawks and mountain plovers. We hope to see these and many more species during this trip. Beginning birders are welcome. This trip involves mostly driving and stopping, little walking is anticipated; return to Davis early afternoon. Reservations required; contact leader Sharon Kirkpatrick at 530-220-3735 or sckirkpa@gmail.com. Jan. 25: Raptor Ramble Our quest: to find as many raptor species as possible in a full day of birding. In addition to the more common species, our targets will include Bald Eagle, Ferruginous Hawk, Golden Eagle, Merlin, Peregrine Falcon, Prairie Falcon and Rough-legged Hawk. Bring binoculars, lunch, plenty of liquids and dress in layers. If you have one, a spotting scope would be really helpful. Meet at the Park-N-Ride Lot near the Ikeda Market in South Davis (off the Mace Boulevard Exit) at 7:30 a.m. for carpooling. Contact leader Kevin Gusé at 916-616-8835.]]>
