Mount Pinos Field Trip
Mt. Pinos is a great place for montain species. Green-tailed Towhees, White-headed Woodpeckers, Creepers, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Stellars Jays and Mountain Quail are to be expected. California Condors are always a possibility. We will leave the Whittier Civic Center at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday June 22, 2019 for the drive to Frasier Park. We will bird a couple of spots near Frasier Park. We will stop at a few spots outside of Frasier to look for raptors and pray for Condors. We will then turn around and head up to Mt. Pinos for more birds and lunch.
Bring a sack lunch, sufficient junk food to last the trip, your usual birdwatching stuff and a car with gas. Scopes will come in handy at a couple of stops. It is about an hour’s drive from Whittier to Frasier Park. I would think we would be back in Whittier between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
