workshops, and afternoon scientific sessions. Evening events include our
famed identification panels and a meet-the-authors and book-signing event
featuring WFO's latest publication, Bird Species of Special Concern.
Full-day field trips are scheduled for Thursday and Sunday to Point Reyes,
Half Moon Bay, the Hayward Shoreline, the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory’s
hawk monitoring site in the Marin Headlands. Also on those days,
Shearwater Journeys is offering two pelagic trips (separate registration)

Monterey Bay from Santa Cruz on Sunday.
Capping off our meeting will be our Saturday evening banquet featuring
keynote speaker Carla Cicero of UC Berkeley, whose topic will be The
Grinnell Resurvey Project: A Century of Avifaunal Change in California.
