This group is affiliated with Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society http://www.SCVAS.org whose members enjoy birding trips to view and photograph birds. The trips are led by experienced birders who can spot and identify the names of birds. Our trips are quite casual and slow paced as we listen and look for birds. Most of us bring binoculars, telescopes and telephoto lenses although this is not a requirement. We usually observe birds from a distance so as to not disturb the activity and the habitat of the birds. Unexpected upclose encounters of birds delighting photographers occur quite frequently. All levels from beginners to expert birders are welcomed to join our bird walks, classes and workshops. Take a non-strenuous walk with us. Post pictures of your avian encounters after each meet up so we can all enjoy them.
