Hamilton Wetlands in Novato, the site of a former air force base, is one of the largest restoration projects in California. In just a short amount of time it has also become one of the most successful. Even though some work is still ongoing, the number of shorebirds that use the restored tidal wetlands is truly dramatic. Thousands of plover, peeps, and small shorebirds feed here while an impressive number of larger waders including avocets, godwits and curlew also use the wetlands. On a two mile walk we will focus on the identifaction and behavior of these and many other birds. The wetlands and adjacent habitats are also good feeding areas for a good variety of raptors. This class will also visit the Las Gallinas ponds to view additional birds.
