308 Birding the snag forest
On this trip we'll explore recently burned forests through both a scientific and an artistic lens. We'll discuss exciting, new scientific findings based on searches for nests and Maya will share some of her new poetry along the way. We will look for snag-dependent birds like White-headed, Hairy, Lewis's, Black-backed woodpeckers, Williamson's Sapsucker and secondary cavity nesters like Mountain Bluebird and Tree Swallow. We'll discuss the many ways that mixed-intensity fire supports biodiversity and ecological health in our conifer forests, and a habitat created by high-intensity fire called complex early seral forest, which is the rarest, most biodiverse, and yet the most threatened of all forest habitat types in the Sierra Nevada. Bring snacks, water, and sunscreen.
