304 Birds of the Bodie Hills
The Bodie Hills form the northern boundary of the Mono Basin and provide excellent habitat for the Bi-State Sage Grouse, a genetically distinct population of the Greater Sage Grouse, and many other birds and wildlife species. We will spend the morning exploring two historic mine sites and birding in aspen, sagebrush and meadow habitats. Then we'll go over the Geiger Grade to explore high elevation shrub habitats looking out for sagebrush species, and if we are lucky, view pronghorn antelope. Targets of the trip include Sage Grouse, Mountain Quail, Western Tanager, Common Nighthawk, and several species of warbler, wren, flycatcher and vireo. The route includes exceptional views of the Sierra Nevada and surrounding mountain ranges. Bring sunscreen, water, lunch, and good walking shoes. This trip involves extensive driving on dirt roads, and it is necessary to carpool due to limited parking along the route. (High clearance vehicle required).
