Central Valley Birding Symposium

Friday, November 17, 2017 -

Judged by many as one of the premier birding events in the West, the CVBS is hosted by the Central Valley Bird Club. With well-known speakers, multiple field trips, artists’ displays, vendors and birders, it is sure to be an event not to miss. TINS's Will Richardson will be leading tours on both Friday and Saturday (check back in soon for more details). TINS will also be hosting a booth at the event. 


TINS' staff Sarah Hockensmith will be co-leading tours on the dates below:

  • Saturday, November 18 at the Stockton Rural Cemetery at 7:30am with Cliff Hawley - The large oaks, elms, and other trees in this historic cemetery host an interesting variety of wintering and migrating thrushes, warblers, sparrows, and woodpeckers, among others. Even when the birding is slow, visitors can enjoy a relaxing stroll through California history.)
  • Sunday, November 19 at the Consumnes River Preserve at 11:45 - Cosumnes River Preserve has the finest valley oak riparian forest in California. The preserve also has extensive wetlands, fallow fields, oak savannahs, and fresh water tidal marshes and swamps. Because this is one of the best locations to observe the overwintering Valley birds, we are offering two, simultaneous field trips, starting at different points. The trips will include visits to the River Walk trail, Lost Slough Boardwalk, along Desmond Road, and wetlands around “The Barn,” (~ 4-5 miles). Participants can expect to see many cranes and waterfowl, a diverse variety of raptors and many songbirds.
