      Hi,

      Based on numerous comments from former attendees since the 2010 end
      of a fully developed birding field trips schedule associated with the
      Kern River Valley Spring Nature Festival, a modest offering of
      birding field trips only will be offered this spring 2012. Wes Fritz,
      John Schmitt, and I will serve as leaders. Individuals to small
      groups (8-10 maximum) are welcome to participate. An average of about
      5 participants per trip per day is needed to cover leader expenses.
      Following is just enough detail to get the ball rolling...

      California Target Birding's WES FRITZ is offering daily to multiple
      day trips during the time period from Sunday, April 29 through
      Sunday, May 13. The first portion of the period will involved field
      trips along the Central California Coast including a day trip to
      Santa Cruz Island. The middle portion of the period will be centered
      on the Kern River Valley and Southern Sierra Nevada. The latter
      portion of the time period will involve birding along the US Hwy 395
      corridor in Inyo County and Mono County. For details on selected days
      to entire period participation (certainly a huge list of birds to be
      found), CONTACT Wes via email at wes-fritz@... (Wes Fritz) or
      via phone (preferred) at 805-895-0685.

      JOHN SCHMITT (artist for numerous bird field guides worldwide
      including the National Geographic guide, raptor expert, outstanding
      field trip leader, and Kern River Valley resident) is offering daily
      field trips during at least the Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6
      period with possibly more days being available if there is demand.
      All of John's day trips will start in the Kern River Valley. Contact
      me, Bob Barnes, to get the ball rolling regarding going on one or
      more of John's daily field trip offerings.

      BOB BARNES (I) is offering day trips out of Ridgecrest (oodles of
      motels at very reasonable cost and lots of restaurants, including 24
      hour, in this city of 25,000 residents) Tuesday, May 1 through
      Thursday, May 3 and selected days as arranged with participants from
      Monday, May 7 through Monday, May 14 (with possible out of Kern River
      Valley starts if preferred and arranged). For more information
      contact me, Bob Barnes, via email at bbarnes@... or via
      phone (preferred) at 760-372-1260. NOTE: I already have two sign-ups
      for May 1-3 with 6 spaces of the maximum 8 left. May 1st is set with
      an all day Kern Desert Loop trip covering Butterbredt Spring,
      California City, Galileo Hill, and Ridgecrest area desert oases. The
      following two days will involve Kern River Valley and Southern Sierra
      Nevada all day excursions. These three days (May 1-3) are a definite go.
