Winter Wren Overwintering at Olema Campground by Mark Stephenson 2021



This year we have started a new form of communication we call Rare Bird Alerts. Each Alert contains 1 or 2 rare or uncommon bird sightings in our area. We hope you will enjoy reading these alerts and deepening your knowledge of birds, and possibly observing one of these gems. If you have a special sighting or other birding information of interest, please feel free to send this information to Mark Stephenson at NapaBirder@gmail.com to be included in the next edition of Rare Bird Alerts.
