Fields' guide to Osprey

Saturday 2:00 PM-5:00 PM
Trip# 363: Fields' guide to Osprey
Description: We will drive to South Tufa where we will walk to Mono Lake to view active Osprey nests, discuss why a fish-eating bird is living at a fishless lake, and talk about Osprey natural history. South Tufa is the best area to view active nests and if we are lucky the chicks will be large enough to offer us a glimpse. Updates to the current research will also be discussed, which includes some dispersal, migration, and local foraging data thanks in part to Chautauqua grants for banding and telemetry study. We may adjust our route (and possibly our location) based upon current Osprey activity. We will be in exposed areas without shade so please bring a hat, water, and sunscreen. (est. driving miles: 22; hiking difficulty: easy)
