We will meet at the Ashlan/Blackstone WalMart at 8:30am for a quick departure. From there we will drive through Visalia to Yokohl Drive, about 12 miles east of Visalia, and start birding at the intersection of Highway 198 and Yokohl Drive. The trip will then follow Yokohl Drive up into the foothills, perhaps as far as the Bear Creek Fire Station. We will then retrace our path back to Fresno.
Plan for a full day of birding. Bring food and water, since there will be no opportunities to purchase anything after reaching Yokohl Drive. Since this trip will involve lots of driving and stopping along the road, participants are encouraged to carpool as much as possible. The fewer the cars, the easier it will be for the group to stop.
Among many other more common species, we stand a good chance of finding Greater Roadrunner, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Ferruginous Hawk, Prairie Falcon, Rock Wren, Canyon Wren, Mountain Bluebird, Vesper Sparrow, and Rufous-crowned Sparrow on this trip.
