Many opportunities for spotting great birds are available on this trip. Wintering shorebirds and waterfowl sometimes number in the 1000s. We will not be attacked by any of The Birds in Hitchcock’s famous movie. After meeting at The Tides Restaurant, we will stop at several places around the harbor including Bodega Head, Campbell Cove and Porto Bodega. Dress appropriately, bring lunch and drinks.
