Humboldt County is a birder's and nature lover's paradise. We have the world's tallest trees, miles of unspoiled coastline, and lots of public land including a national park, 13 state parks, and a national wildlife refuge. The wildlife viewing opportunities are incredible; for instance, almost 470 bird species have been seen here, more than in most states! At any time of year, it is possible to see over 100 in a day. Seals, whales, otters, elk, and bears are also abundant. Let me share them with you!I can do tours in other parts of California as well. My Experience My Rates and Availability
I have been birding actively since 1981 and have worked professionally as an ornithologist and guide since 1987. I live here and know the area inside and out. I am a field trip coordinator for, and the past president of, our local Audubon Society chapter and have led birding and nature-study trips here for the following groups:
My rates, for any number of people, are only
Half day: $100.00
Full day: $175.00
Two days: $300.00
For liability reasons, I cannot provide transportation.
I can customize your tour to focus on certain species or habitats, or we can take a less-focused approach and simply go exploring! Our choices will, of course, be influenced by the season and the weather.
