Although birding is a year-round activity in Sonoma County, birds sing less and are not as active in fall and winter, so they can be harder to find. This guided walk will set out to find and identify resident birds and winter visitors by sight, sound, and habitat, with a goal of spotting at least 20 species. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, water and a snack. The walk will be about three miles with uphill and downhill sections.
Leader Carolyn Greene is a serious birder who leads field trips for the Madrone Audubon Society. “I’m 51% birder, 49% botanist,” she says. With a degree in biogeography from the University of California and a specialty in botany, Greene has worked as a field biologist, conducting wildlife, plant, and restoration research for the past 25 years, at local parks and California State Parks and for the U.S. National Park Service. She is also a certified California Naturalist and “Cal Nat” trainer.
