Birding Lundy Canyon

Friday 8:00 AM-12:30 PM
Trip# 237: Birding Lundy Canyon
Description: We will head up Lundy Canyon with open minds regarding what we may see, enjoying the wonderful assemblage of breeding birds in this Eastern Sierra drainage. The mixture of open water, riparian, coniferous, and sagebrush habitats found in this canyon attracts a nice diversity of birds, and these habitats are quite accessible via the main road and short trails along the creek. Since it will be the heart of nesting season, we will likely spend some time observing birds at various stages of their breeding cycles. Expect sapsuckers, woodpeckers, pewees, vireos, jays, nuthatches, creepers, wrens, chickadees, grosbeaks, swallows, warblers, tanagers, juncos, towhees, sparrows, and finches. We will be walking mostly on dirt roads and trails with some light off-trail walking possible. (est. driving miles: 25, hiking difficulty: easy to moderate)
