      Field Trip Information Updated 6/27/

SUNDAY, JULY 22 - SAN MATEO/SAN FRANCISCO COUNTIES

We will visit various locations in San Mateo County, and possibly San Francisco County, to look for whatever rarities are being reported at the time. Our main goal will be to locate the Northern Gannet that has been frequenting the area for the past few years. Possible birding locations include Devil’s Slide Trail, Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and Pillar Point Harbor. If we are successful in finding the gannet then we will shift our focus to other rarities being reported in the area at the time. Bring lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, and insect repellent. The weather on the coast is usually good this time of year but can be unpredictable so bring warm layers just in case. Meet at Target, 2425 Claribel Rd, Riverbank (in front of the closed garden center) at 6:00am. This will be an all day trip; we will have dinner on the way back.
