Fall migrants, including rarities, can often be found at the birding hotspots in outer Point Reyes National Seashore. This all-day caravan-style birding trip will visit some of the prime birding locations on the outer point, such as the fish docks, lighthouse, various ranches, and Drake's Beach, where we'll have lunch.
We'll plan to finish the day at the RCA building cypresses and the Inverness Tennis Club. We will leave from Bovine Bakery in Point Reyes Station promptly at 7:30am so we can get to the outer point as early as possible.
Please plan to arrive by 7:00am so we can organize carpools, you can get breakfast (they serve very good coffee and delicious pastries at the bakery), and you have time to make a bathroom stop (there is a public restroom one block northeast of the bakery, on Mesa Rd). Wear layers—the outer point can be very chilly! Bring lunch, liquids, sunscreen, and a full gas tank. We will try to bring as few cars as possible to the outer point because parking is very limited in places.
Directions: Take the Richmond Bridge to Hwy 101 North, take Lucas Valley Rd exit, then turn right on Nicasio Valley Rd, left on Petaluma-Point Reyes Rd, and left on Shoreline Hwy (Hwy 1). The address of Bovine Bakery is 11315 Shoreline Hwy, Point Reyes Station, CA
