Waterfowl of the Laguna de Santa Rosa Sunrise Natural History Walk with Dave Barry
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.
Join us for another waterfowl-focused event with Dave the previous day on Saturday, January 20, 3:00-4:30pm for a presentation all about wonderful waterfowl.
