Free bird walks at Mono Lake County Park begin this weekendMay 19th, 2016 by Sandra, Birding Intern
Several events mark the beginning of the Mono Lake Committee’s summer season. One of them is the start of weekend bird-walks at Mono Lake County Park, a joint program with California State Parks.
You are invited to join experienced guides every Friday and Sunday at 8:00am (meet at the County Park parking lot) for a two-hour guided walk through a variety of habitats including an aging woodland with dead snags, sagebrush scrub, grassland, riparian oasis, and the shore of Mono Lake. As you can imagine, this variety of habitats supports a wide variety of birds.
These following photos of a few of the species seen on a preview walk earlier this week are designed to entice you…. Do join us, it’s relaxing, it’s fun and it’s free!
All these, plus Osprey nesting on a tufa platform in Mono Lake can be observed from the end of the boardwalk. We hope to see you this weekend, or any Friday or Sunday throughout the summer!
