Will Richardson will be leading a bird walk in the Donner Summit area in this outing co-sponsored between TINS, the Truckee Trails Foundation, and the Mountain Area Preservation Fund. We can park right at the summit of Old 40, near the Suga…rbowl Academy buildings. They’ll tow if you’re actually in their lot, but there are plenty of gravel spaces behind the derelict-looking corrugated tin building. Heading north on the PCT towards Flora and Azalea lakes, we should see Fox and White-crowned Sparrows, MacGillivray’s and several other warblers, Townsend’s Solitaire, Green-tailed Towhee, Rufous Hummingbird, and hopefully Peregrine Falcon (among others). The botany should be pretty good too! Expect rocky terrain and possibly a puddle or two – wear appropriate footwear! Group size limited to 25, and TTF will be handling registration.
Walk will be from 7:30 am- 11:30 am
