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!
