MDAS Field Trip — Bodega Bay
August 19 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Saturday, August 20, 9 AM to 3 PM
The last trip of our annual field trip calendar, but sometimes considered the first trip for fall birding. At Bodega Bay we’ll encounter flocks of shorebirds including Black Oystercatcher and Marbled Godwit, as well as terns, gulls, cormorants, near-shore pelagics and more – perhaps a Wandering Tattler. Bring liquids, lunch and sunscreen.
