Tomales Bay is a wintering area for thousands of waterbirds. The tidal flats, marshes, rocky shores, and beaches provide diverse feeding areas for raptors, shorebirds and waders. We’ll focus on bird identification and behavior during short and easy walks. Our car-caravan begins in Tomales and proceeds along the east shore.

-Throughout the course of the day, we will be driving 45 miles.

-If you have any special circumstances or questions, please contact us at fieldinstitute@ptreyes.org.
