"Birds of the Farallones" Audubon Field Seminar.
Saturday August 9 7:00AM-5:00PM
Location: Half Moon Bay (Princeton Harbor)
Cost: $130 members; $150 non-members
Leader: Al Jaramillo, Matthew Dodder, Bob Power. A summer trip to the Farrallones conjures up images of Great White Sharks and Humpback whales. While we hope to encounter the entire breadth of ocean life the islands have to offer, we'll be going for nesting seabirds. The islands are teeming with nesting birds and our timing adds seabird migration to the mix. Join us for an unforgettable experience.
Al Jaramillo -- Experience pelagic guide who has pioneered Half Moon Bay based pelagic birding trips.
Bob Power - Veteran trip leader and pelagic birder.
Matthew Dodder - Land and sea field trip leader and birding instructor for over 13 years.
This is an approximately 10-hour trip, with a deep-water visit off the continental shelf on the return. For more information on this trip, see the Tour Website (but please note that you MUST register through SCVAS for this particular tour).
