Fall Bird Migration

9/15/2007 - Fall Bird Migration

Fall Bird Migration

Witness a spectacular annual avian rite of passage when Museum Director Robert McKernan takes participants on a one-day field trip to the San Bernardino Mountains on Saturday, September 15. Space is limited, and the deadline for registration is September 10.

"Our local San Bernardino Mountains attract south-bound migrating birds, some flying thousands of miles to reach their winter homes in Mexico and beyond," said McKernan. "How do you find a good spot to observe the fall migration? Three words: habitat, habitat, and habitat. Our trip will concentrate on specific mountain habitats: stream-side, pine forest, oak woodlands, meadows, and aquatic areas such as Big Bear and Baldwin Lakes."

The cost of $60 per person ($50 for Museum Association members) will include transportation, coffee and muffins, lunch, snack and beverages. Check in will be at 6:30am at the museum and participants will return to the museum at about 5:00pm. Participants are advised to wear sturdy and comfortable shoes for moderate hiking, bring binoculars, sunscreen, a hat, and a bird book. McKernan recommends the "National Geographic Bird Guide," or the "Sibley Bird Guide," both available at the Museum Store.

For more information and registration, call Lawanda Avery-Brown at (909) 307-2669 ext. 225. Registration form is also available on the museum website Pre-paid registration is required by September 10.
