Leader: Robb Hamilton

Kick off the most exciting month in birding -- October!!! -- with a field trip to Colorado Lagoon in Long Beach. This charming coastal locale features a great selection of birds of the water and land, and during migration anything is possible. The eBird checklist for the lagoon stands at 230 species, including such highlights as Virginia’s Warbler, Lapland Longspur, Grasshopper Sparrow, and Tricolored Heron. Join Robb Hamilton on an easy, one mile walk around the lagoon’s perimeter.
