Owens Valley Grouse Trip


  • 34 Benton Crossing Rd (map)

Leaders: Mary and Nick Freeman.

Friday (April 26) evening in Bishop: an expert grouse biologist will hopefully be available to present a slide show on the Sage Grouse, at the BLM headquarters building.

Early Saturday (April 27): We will meet at the Crowley Lake turnoff (“the Green Church” at 34 Benton Crossing Rd, Mammoth Lakes – GPS address) for Sage Grouse photos and viewing, distant Bald Eagles, waterfowl and shorebirds down by Crowley Lake afterwards, and later possible Black-backed Woodpecker and Evening Grosbeak!

Sunday, plan to meet in Bishop at Jack’s Restaurant (437 N Main St) as we foray to Aspendell, Glacier Lodge and elsewhere for Grey-crowned Rosy-Finch, Sooty Grouse, Bank Swallow, Juniper Titmouse, and perhaps Golden Eagle or Chukar. An e-mailer will be sent out to the participants who have signed-up and paid for this trip, including some hotels. Arrange your own lodging in Bishop for Friday and Saturday nights. Net profits go towards the Ralph Schreiber Grant Fund.
