EXPLORE the remarkable avian diversity of the ‘Golden State’ with TALON TOURS. California is a world destination for many reasons and birding is high on the list. Ranging from mountains to coastline and deserts to lush valleys, the diversity of habitats provides excellent birding opportunities. Our coastline consists of fresh and saltwater wetlands, rocky and sandy habitat and ample pelagic opportunities.
EXPERIENCE the majestic Sierra Mountains with delights such as Great Gray Owls, Northern Goshawk and Blue Grouse. Spring and summer find an abundance of Neo-tropical migrants such as Western Tanager, Lazuli Bunting and Swainson’s Hawks briefly breeding here, before returning south to the tropics. Winter brings returning waterfowl, shorebirds and passerines back home from their northern nesting sites.
FALL is a time of migration throughout the state as raptors, pelagics, passerines and shorebirds return to the tropics. Winter in the central valley is abundant with Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles and thousands of Snow and Ross’s Geese. With this brief introduction, TALON TOURS invites you to join us in birding this remarkable destination.
