Bird Hike at Oso Flaco Lake
Join the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center on September 17 at 8 am while our hike docent, John Deacon leads a bird hike through Oso Flaco Lake, through the dunes and out to the ocean (about 3 miles round trip).
Early fall is a great time to observe birds at Oso Flaco. In fact, it’s the best time of the year to see Pied Billed Grebes, Common Yellowthroats, Bewick’s Wrens, Black Crowned Night Herons, Green Herons, Marbled Godwits and Greater Yellowlegs. As usual, we should also get good looks at Snowy Plovers. While it will be a bit early to see migrating Gray Whales, we could get a look at some of the early whales heading to their southern breeding waters.
