This walk is for ages 18 and up. Gulls are certainly challenging but with a few tricks and a little patience we’ll learn to differentiate between the species we regularly see here in winter. We’ll discuss identification, plumages, and life-histories as we attempt to demystify these beautiful birds. We’ll spend some time at Drake’s Beach and then drive to a few other locations in Pt. Reyes in search of the various gulls that frequent these areas. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.
Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.
No registration is required.
