Join naturalist and birder, Jim Woods, on a hunt for migrating birds heading from Hope Valley to lower elevations of beautiful Alpine County at Sorensen’s Resort November 8, 20134.
With informed guide and local birder Jim Woods, plan on having a fun and informative nature day with our local birds as the star of the show.
If the weather is right, participants will feast on lots of Raptor sightings, but it will be a famine if the weather has moved the birds along. In that case, a short drive into Carson Valley (8-10 miles) may help participants find Barn Owls and other birds stopping over and feeding in the local wetlands and open fields. Be prepared to drive/carpool.
