Our May field trip will be to Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, which is located north of Palm Springs. We will convene in the parking lot of the Whittier Community Center and carpool/caravan, leaving at 6:00 am sharp. It’s close to a 2-hour drive, so we must leave promptly at 6:00. If you would rather meet us at Big Morongo, plan to rendezvous in the parking lot there at 8:00.
Big Morongo is a great place for migrant flycatchers and warblers as well as interesting local residents. It can get hot, so be prepared for warm weather. Bring water, a lunch, a hat, and sunscreen. We will bird Big Morongo and Covington Park and have lunch in the park. We should be back in Whittier between 3:00 and 4:00.
