RFI: Birding Lake Tahoe in early Aug?
In just over 1 month (August 8th/9th), I will be
visiting the Lake Tahoe region very briefly as part of
my 2 week cross-country trip from CA to NY. I will be
visiting the area with a close friend, who, like me,
is an avid birder. Our stay in the area will last only
about 1.5 days, but I would like to make the most of
it, especially with the birds.
With that said, I was curious if anyone had any
suggestions for getting the most out of the area, in
particular, what places one could visit to not only
pick up the regularly occurring species (White-headed
Woodpecker, Mountain Chickadee, warblers, etc.) in
addition to any 'specialty' birds that we both could
I have included a list of some target species (below),
that I am personally hoping to come across. If anyone
has any additional information on where one could find
these species around the Lake Tahoe region, please
respond to me off list. The help is greatly
