We will visit 2-3 sites along the Laguna, not normally open to the public, where waterfowl love to hang out. On our early morning walk we will learn to identify ducks by their behavior and vocalization, both in flight and while feeding. We will learn basic identification techniques and key characteristics of waterfowl found in Sonoma County and along the Laguna de Santa Rosa at different times of year, as well as learn cool facts such as the difference between “dabbling” and ”diving” ducks and its importance to these masters of the water world. We will keep a list of what we see and compare notes back at Heron Hall. This natural history walk is suitable for novice to advanced birders, 10 years old and up. Light snacks provided.

Dave Barry is a certified California Naturalist, a certification program created by UC Berkeley and UC Davis. Dave brings a breath of experience and knowledge of birding and nature to his volunteer work mentoring young birders, leading bird tours and nature hikes, and giving natural history talks. Dave is a Santa Rosa native and has done programs with LandPaths, Sonoma Land Trust, Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, the Wildlands Conservancy, and is a lead naturalist with West County Hawk Watch.
