Sing-ups are on a First Come-First Served Basis with Priority given to NSAS Members. Be on Alert for this Sensational Trip's sign-up eMail from Wendy Cole. We will look for Green Herons, Wood Ducks, Greater Yellowlegs, Great Horned Owls, Migrant Warblers, Lawrence’s Goldfinch, Allen’s Hummingbirds, Lewis’ Woodpeckers, Yellow-billed Magpies, Greater Roadrunners, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, and Yellow-breasted Chats to name a few of the amazing birds that inhabit this area of our State.

Del Valle Charges a $6 entrance Fee and there are no Gas Stations and Food Markets along this rural route, so bring a full tank of gas, and plenty of food, water, and snacks to carry you through!

The meeting point is South of Livermore at the start of Mines Road so allow an hour and a half to arrive on time.

Those that are interested can download Jean Richmond's Northern California Birding from the Mt Diablo Audubon Website, and see all of the potential species and the route we'll take on this trip. Link to download: https://mtdiabloaudubon.org/birding/resources/
