Salton Sea Field Trip Come join Palomar Audubon Society as we bird the Salton Sea and surrounding area on February 3 – February 5, 2023. For those who have not ventured to the Salton Sea, you are in for an absolutely thrilling experience when at daybreak you watch thousands of snow geese and sandhill cranes rise up from local ponds to feed in nearby grain fields. In less than a three-hour drive from anywhere in San Diego County, you too can transcend into these wintering grounds. It is also one of the few places where the cutest owl on earth, the burrowing owl, can regularly be seen as he stands steadfastly in front of his underground borough. Is there anything else? Yes! A pre-teen member, Luca, all on his own, located, identified and documented seventy-five species in just one day around Salton Sea. If he can do that, what can we do?
We are limiting the number of participants to 30, to maximize the birding experience. This field trip is a fundraiser for Palomar Audubon Society and is limited to members of Palomar Audubon. (You can find an application to for $25 annual membership here).
