September 24 @ 6:30 am September 25 @ 4:30 pm

This birding seminar will scour the county looking for rare birds that show up during the fall migration. We will seek out rare birds that have been reported and we will bird several hotspots where rarities tend to show up looking for more! This seminar requires patience and enthusiasm for long days. There are no guarantees of seeing the rare birds, but we will do our best to find them as well as to enjoy what we see, regardless of rarity.

Activity level: DIFFICULT

This seminar’s activity level: difficult. Because we cannot plan this seminar in advance, participants will need to be prepared for anything! This seminar will consist of two long, tiring, rewarding days in the field. We may be walking up to five miles a day, some of which will be over uneven terrain, off trail, and will include stepping up and over obstacles. This type of walking requires good balance, some agility, and stamina. Be prepared for short, steep sections of trail.
