224 Birding Lee Vining diversion pond
Spend the afternoon meandering along a lower elevation portion of Lee Vining Canyon. There will be a chance to see American dippers, which have nested here in past years, as well as other water-loving species such as diving birds, swallows, and riparian songbirds. There is also ample mixed sagebrush and aspen habitat that runs adjacent to Lee Vining Creek, which may unveil an interesting mix of birds that love dryer and wetter areas in close proximity to each other. Gaze upward onto the mountains of Tioga Pass and you may also find interesting raptors and corvids. Expect to hear the lovely sounds of a flowing creek and ample birdsong. Bring snacks, water, and sunscreen.
