Visit the BEST birding spots in the Ojai Valley and surrounding area with one of the BEST Interpretive Naturalist in Southern California.
More than just a bird walk! Learn not just where the birds are but why they are there!
I specialize in beginner birding! Learn the birds AND the ecology of the area.
Up to five binoculars can be provided.
You big “tickers” are welcome also! Need a west coast species for your life list?
My eBird (http://ebird.org) count for this yard stands at 76 species since March of 2013. Since I have had this residence (2004) the count is 82.
“Be sure to click on Notes of a Naturalist and read my essays, with lots of photos, on the natural history of this area. There are many interesting essays on birds, and other things that I hope you enjoy!”~ Bruce
The standard bird walk and/or nature tour is a non-strenuous field trip lasting up to five hours. There will be driving to the local hot spots. The format of these field trips is geared for adults. Participant ages teen to adult are welcome.
Bird watching trips should start between 7 and 8 am, remember birds are out early. Nature tours can start at any time. Contact Bruce for rates and availability.
