Birding in Shoshone

Hi I'm Len Warren. I have been a nest searcher here at PRBO (Point Reyes Bird Obsevatory) Amargosa Canyon Songbird Project for the past three seasons. I'm starting my second Fall/Winter season as Staff Naturalist for Shoshone Village. We are currently promoting birding and eco-tourism in Shoshone Wetlands and surrounding areas, and would like to invite you to come birding here.

 


 

THE GREAT MIGRATION MYSTERY

SHOSHONE, Calif. — It’s the mistletoe that grows on the mesquite trees here that attracts flocks of little birds called Phainopepla each September. The birds feed on the mistletoe, mate, feast until May — and then they fly away until next year. But where do the crested birds, which grow to as much as 8 inches tall, go when they leave?
