Field Trip - Birding By Ear, Sunday June 9th @Cloisters

Birding By Ear Field Trip, Sunday, June 9th at the Cloisters 8:00 AM

"Birding By Ear" is back by popular demand! Join Jessica Griffiths for this final monthly bird walk focusing on bird songs and calls. She will ID all of the bird songs we hear, as well as presenting helpful tips and mnemonic devices for remembering who sings what.

Birding will include Cloisters in Morro Bay and along the adjacent beach on Sunday, June 9th. Meet at 8:00 AM near the restrooms and the playground at the Cloisters, across Highway 1 from Spencer’s Market. Here's a map http://goo.gl/maps/XklfW

This trip is suitable for all ages and the Cloisters portion is appropriate for mobility impaired. The trip will involve about 1-2 miles of walking, paved paths throughout the Cloisters and beach walking along the ocean and dunes.

You will hear some great-tailed grackles on this trip, here's a preview at http://birds.audubon.org/birds/great-tailed-grackle
