Sunrise Wetland Walk with Duck Man Dave Barry
Celebrate International Wetlands Day with an early winter morning on the Laguna de Santa Rosa with local wetland birder Duck Man Dave Barry! We will visit 2 sites along the Laguna, not normally open to the public, where waterfowl love to hang out during the winter months. Come learn basic identification techniques and key characteristics of waterfowl found in Sonoma County and along the Laguna de Santa Rosa at different times of year, as well as learn cool facts such as the difference between dabbling" and diving ducks and its importance to these masters of the water world. We will keep a list of what we see and compare notes back at Heron Hall. This natural history walk is suitable for novice to advanced birders, 10 years old and up.
