Welcome


Dunnock - Bremen, Germany

This site is for folks interested in learning about Bay Area Birds.  Links above will give you details of Birding classes at Golden Gate Audubon and other Bay Area sites.  You can find information about selected field trips through Golden Gate Audubon, and Special Topics like the Bird Censuses or Christmas Bird Counts.  Finally, "Bob's Travels" may give you some ideas for birding expeditions of your own. 

Alameda County 2012 Year List  here!

Bob Richmond suggested we keep track of sightings.  Take a look.  This listing will give you an idea of when, and maybe where, to seek an unusual species in Alameda County!

County Big Year Results available

Alameda and Contra Costa County Birders celebrated the end of their Big Year efforts in January 2009.  Check the links above for results.  Again, a clue for when and where to look for unusual species.

Master Birder Class!!!

The second Master Birder class is about half done.  The next class, if offered, will start February 2015.  Registration will be through the California Academy of Science.  More details when available.
