Cavity nesters of Lee Vining Canyon

Sunday 7:00 AM-11:30 AM
Trip# 419: Cavity nesters of Lee Vining Canyon
Description: The aspen groves and coniferous uplands in Lee Vining Canyon support an abundance of cavity-nesting birds. In some stands, it seems that every available cavity is occupied by a chickadee, nuthatch, swallow, or wren, not to mention the carpenters who create the cavities: the amazing woodpeckers. On this field trip, we will explore the riparian richness along Lee Vining Creek. We will make a few key stops in the canyon, wandering through aspen galleries and pine stands as Steve interprets the natural history of these local avian habitats. In addition to studying the cavity nesters, we will also enjoy a host of other nesting songbirds, including MacGillivray's Warbler, Western Tanager, Bullock's Oriole, Black-headed Grosbeak, and many more. Expect leisurely walks along well-used roads and trails. (est. driving miles: 35; hiking difficulty: easy)
