Description

This is a first-time Snow Goose Festival offering! Plumas County is often visited in summer but lightly birded in winter. We will start by birding the Feather River Canyon, where we should find granite-loving Rock and Canyon Wrens, dippers, mergansers and Bald Eagles, We'll loop through Indian Valley looking for open country and grassland birds and raptors. After lunch we will spend the afternoon birding Lake Almanor, which often hosts thousands of waterfowl in winter. Surrounding Lake Almanor is a variety of montane species. Dress in layers and prepare for possible cold and wet. Bring lunch, water, and binoculars. Carpooling is mandatory to maintain a four vehicle limit.
