Saturday, May 14: Kneeland/Showers Pass.

This will be a vehicle-based exploration of the upland prairies and forests of central Humboldt County. Potential “good” birds include Golden Eagle, Sooty Grouse, Ruffed Grouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, Western Kingbird, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Rock Wren, Grasshopper Sparrow, and Lark Sparrow.
 
We’ll caravan from Freshwater Corners to Bridgeville and return via Highway 36. Plan on being out all day with no services or restrooms. We’ll be carpooling in as few vehicles as possible, so please plan on either transporting passengers or leaving your car behind. Passengers should be willing to chip in gas money to drivers.
 
Meet leader Ken Burton ([707] 499-1146) on Freshwater Road and Myrtle Avenue at 7:30 a.m.
