Common Goldeneye

Field Trip: Quail Lake and Vicinity

Sat, Feb 26, 2022

Join us for a trip to the extreme northwest corner of LA County, where we will look for waterbirds, raptors, and other winter visitors that are hard to find elsewhere in the county. Both Scaup species are usually present, along with Common Goldeneye and Common Merganser. Both Bald and Golden Eagles are possible, as are Ferruginous Hawk and Prairie Falcon. Past rarities seen on this trip include Barrow’s Goldeneye, California Condor, Long-tailed Duck, and White-winged Scoter. We will bird Quail Lake and then move to other hot spots in the area. If people are especially enthusiastic, we can bird past 2pm.

Finally, we are still in the grips of Covid, so vaccinations will be required, you must wear a mask, and you will need to sign a waiver.
