Birds of the Bay

10:00 AM – 11:30 AM


The San Francisco Bay is truly a bird watcher's paradise!  

Did you know that the San Francisco Bay is considered a Site of Hemispheric Importance for shorebirds, hosting more than a million individuals every year? A few species breed here, but most nest further north and spend the winter here, feeding on the buffet of creatures offered by the Bay. 

In this presentation, birding expert Bob Lewis will talk about shorebird identification and behaviors, and then look at some of the other birds seen around the Bay.

About the Presenter:

Bob Lewis has taught birding classes in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 25 years and served as adult education chair on the board of Golden Gate Audubon. He was awarded the Golden Gate Audubon’s Paul Covel award for Education in 2017. Bob's life list is over 5000, and he loves to travel in pursuit of adding to that list! Bob is an award-winning photographer, focusing on birds, and hopes to resume his travels with a trip to Australia and New Zealand.  For more information, see his website at .
