SCVAS Spring Birdathon March 28 – April 26
Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society Each spring our local Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society holds their most important fundraiser known as the Spring Birdathon. To participate you can form your own Self-Guided team or join one of the already prearranged Guided Teams. The goal of a Birdathon is for you to get folks to support your efforts and gather pledges ahead of time and then you go out and count or photograph bird species within the Spring Birdathon window from March 28 – April 26. You can count up to 4 hours or go out the entire day. You can even join the Big-sit competition where you sit in one spot and count all the birds around you for up to four hours. This is a very important fundraiser for SCVAS and the people who raise the most money win great prizes. Every year the Los Gatos Birdwatcher is proud to donate one of the top prizes. For all the information about this and several other Birdathon events and how you can participate please visit www.scvas.org.

Let’s Go Birding with Lisa Myers
to Lone Tree Road

Saturday, April 18, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Lone Tree Road is a beautiful country road north/east of Hollister. Lone Tree winds its way up to 1200 feet in elevation and deadends 10 miles into the foothills. It’s a great place for birding as the road travels through different habitats, fields, along streams and under woodland canopies. The breeding season will be underway and birds will be in returning from the south and singing. This location is ideal for Golden Eagles, Lazuli Bunting and much more. Fee: $60 Bus and Birdaloo

Let’s Go Birding with Lisa Myers
to Mines Road

Saturday, May 16, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Mines Road is located on the eastern side of the Mount Hamilton Range is an annual event for birdwatchers. This long, rural road allows for many pull-outs as we spot Golden Eagles, Lewis’s Woodleckers, Phainopepla, Lawrence’s Goldfinch, Lark Sparrow and many more. We never know what to expect and that is one reason this day is always an adventure. Evergreens and Oak Trees cover the hillsides and our birding will be done along road side pull outs where we study the landscape and find our birds. Fee: $60 Bus and Birdaloo
