Our program will be about the Shorebirds of Mendocino County. Even though shorebirds are not as common here in Mendocino County, they are still coming through on migration and there are a few that are residents. In this presentation Ron LeValley will review the shorebirds that come through Mendocino County, the ones that are resident here as well as the annual migration of the birds and the identification.
