Need birds for your Tehama County list? This will be a whirlwind tour of the eastern side of the county, counting as many species as possible. We will hit a few hotspots near Red Bluff before heading up to the high country and towards the south end of Lassen Park. So, if spending a lot of time in the car between birding spots, eating on the run and limited restrooms stops, sounds like a good time to you, then come on out! Bring your bins, lunch, water and be prepared for changing weather. We will be heading up to 6800' in elevation, so bring layers to keep you cozy.
