FIELD TRIP:    Winter Shorebirds of Morro Strand

DATE:             Thursday, February 16, 2023

TIME:              9:00am - 11:00am

LEADER:        Robbie Revel

CO-LEADER:  Freddy Howell

Trip is limited to 12 participants - Signups will be taken for 24 hours. 12 participants will be randomly selected. The remainder will be put on standby status in case of cancellations.


Identification of Shorebirds will be our goal as we walk along Morro Strand and explore the seasonal pools that often have an amazing variety of species. We hope to see gulls, terns, and shorebirds and learn to identify our most common winter visitors. Walk will be on a flat beach with some areas of deep sand. Expect to walk 1 – 2 miles at a slow pace.

Bring a hat, water, snacks, sunscreen, binoculars, and field guides (if you have them) and dress in layers to accommodate wind and changing weather. Sturdy shoes appropriate for walking in sand are recommended. Scopes and cameras welcomed. Restrooms are available. Rain cancels.

ADA Accessible: No
