On past trips we’ve seen approximately 80 species of birds including Townsend’s Solitaire, Mountain Bluebird, American Pipit, Horned Lark, Northern Goshawk, Golden Eagle and Prairie Falcon. We search for and often spot Bighorn Sheep among the high peaks of the mountain, sometimes distant and sometimes near. Coyotes and Mule Deer are often sighted and you never know when a Porcupine is going to waddle into view. Conditions permitting we will venture out to Borax Lake, home of the unique and endangered Borax Lake Chub and we’ll visit the Alvord Desert.

Important info about lodging:
The trip fee is based on double occupancy. The rooms at the Frenchglen Hotel have just one double bed. If you do not want to share a bed you will need to request a single supplement. There is a single supplement fee of $200 if you are the sole occupant of the room. Also, bathrooms are located outside of the rooms.
Notes on Accessibility: Most of our birding on this trip will be from the vans, or on short walks on well-graded, level roads and trails. There are also several short hikes of less than 1 mile on uneven ground possible, and we will occasionally be walking at high elevation (over 8000′).
