Yellow-rumped Warbler – Luke Tiller

April 29th-30th – Antelope Valley Weekend – $60.00

This self-drive tour is aimed at the peak of migration for many species. It should therefore be a good time to find a large numbers and varied mix of migrant birds. We will search the deserts on two days looking for birds, staying the night in the desert Saturday so as to be up and out early looking for migrants on Sunday. The trip report will give you some idea of the way it will run (report here). For details send me an email at luke.tiller@gmail.com

May 4th Date changed to May 3rd – Hahamongna – Local Walk – FREE

Tennessee Warbler – Luke Tiller

May 20th-21st – LA and Kern County Vagrants – $60.00

This self-drive tour is aimed at late migrants and peak vagrant season. This is the period when literally anything can show up in Southern California and our target will be those weird and potentially wonderful species.  We will search the deserts on two days looking for interesting vagrants as well as later migrants staying the night in the desert Saturday so as to be up and out early looking for birds on Sunday. The linked trip report will give you some idea of the way it will run (report here). For details send me an email at luke.tiller@gmail.com
