More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss


Bulk up your County list. Marathon Big Days are like birding on steroids! Fun, frenetic, high-energy, fast paced! All in an attempt to record as many species as can be seen within Butte County in one day. Butte County has a variety of habitats at differing elevations. We will visit many of that county's hotspots. If you've got what it takes, have a great sense of humor and adventure, and don't mind waiting too long between restroom stops, join this trip! We might encounter snow, so be prepared. Bring lunch, water, and binoculars and be prepared to eat in the vehicles while driving to locations.
