Bolivar Birding with Dick Peake

April 8 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm
$70

Birding Bolivar is Dick Peake’s favorite local event! Guests will explore various habitats on the peninsula, e.g., sand flats, grassy prairies, jetties, tidal sloughs, wooded lots, and Fort Travis. The Bolivar sand flats area is known as one of the finest migratory locations in North America for shorebirds, terns, herons, egrets and other water birds. It is a designated habitat for the protection of the endangered, wintering Piping Plover.

Targets: Expect to see at least 80 – 100 species! For example: 5 species of plovers, 7 species of terns, 4 species of gulls, Dowitchers, Peregrine Falcon, Northern Harrier, Marbled Godwit, Long-billed Curlew, Whimbrel, Red Knot, White-tailed Kite, Marsh Wren, Seaside Sparrow, and Osprey
