Birding Spots of I-5 by Harry Fuller
This presentation will describe some of the best birding spots along I-5 north of Redding. All locations are easily reached from a freeway interchange. We will pay particular attention to the high elevation section of freeway north of Dunsmuir where Mountain Chickadee and Bluebird, Green-tailed Towhee and Calliope Hummingbird become accessible to the traveling birder. We will particularly focus on the Great Gray Owl which is found in the southern Cascades of Oregon and there may be more of this elusive species in one county than in all of California where the owl is endangered.
Harry Fuller had been leading birding trips along the Pacific Coast for over twenty years. He has lived in San Francisco, southern Oregon and now near Portland, Oregon. He has written two birding books: Freeway Birding, on all the birding stops along I-5 from Sacramento to Seattle, and Great Gray Owls of California, Oregon and Washington with over 100 photos by his co-author. He regularly guides trips for Golden Gate Audubon, Klamath Bird Observatory and Partnership for International Birding. His blog can be found at: atowhee.wordpress.com.
