Field Trip: Pre-Scout Benicia CBC Field Trip

Date: Friday December 14, 2018

Time: 8:00 AM

Join Robin Leong to scout several locations in advance of the Benicia Christmas Bird Count. (NSAS Event)


Leader: Robin Leong

Description: We will start at the Lynch Canyon parking lot and preview several areas in the 15 mile diameter Benicia Christmas Bird Count (BCBC) circle. We will learn how to estimate the number of species seen, as well as tally as many species as possible. Since this field trip is during the count period, species can be counted as a Count Week species if they are not seen on the December 17th Christmas Bird Count. We will bird until 2 PM or so.

Please bring binoculars, layered clothing and something to eat, if you like. Heavy rain will cancel the walk.
