Sunday, December 5, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. along the V Street loop in Arcata with leaders Jaime Carlino and Laura Echávez.
Back by popular demand, both are graduate students in Dr. Matt Johnson’s Lab of Habitat Ecology at HSU studying barn owls.
Jaime’s work examines the effects of habitat preferences and intrinsic quality on annual reproductive success and Laura’s focusing on plumage variation in barn owls in Napa Valley. Laura has an extensive background handling and observing raptors, having interned with Golden Gate Raptor Observatory and working extensively with raptors since then, and Jaime has experience conducting raptor surveys in the Sierra Nevada and working to eliminate the use of toxic rodenticides that work their way up the food chain as director of Humboldt County’s regional chapter of Raptors Are the Solution (RATS).

Sat. January 8th – 10am - noon.
Gail Kenny and Denise Seeger will be co-leading the next women and girls birdwalk series at Ma- le’l Dunes North, where the unique (and restored!) dune habitat hosts a variety of songbirds such as sparrows and waxwings, seabirds, shorebirds and gulls, raptors including osprey, harriers and kites, and often some surprising characters as well. Join them for a morning of what will likely be exceptional Humboldt birding! For reservations and meeting location, contact Janelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
