Other Audubon Sites

Audubon's Mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.

Local Birding Areas

Pixley Refuge may be home to a small marsh but it has some of the last significant acres of Valley Grassland habitat. During the winter months, it is the best place in the Southern San Joaquin Valley to view Sandhill Cranes

Situated on what was once the largest freshwater wetland in the western United States, Kern National Wildlife Refuge provides optimum wintering habitat for migratory waterfowl and wading birds.

The Kern River Preserve is managed by Audubon-California for the preservation of one of California’s finest remaining riparian forests and the wildlife it supports.

The Birding Lists Digest

Other Birding Groups

Tulare and Kings County Birds Yahoo Group is devoted to sharing information regarding wild birds and birding in Tulare and Kings Counties, California. You must be a registered Yahoo user.

A real-time, online checklist program, eBird has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. Launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution at a variety of spatial and temporal scales.

The Hummingbird Society was created in 1996 as a nonprofit organization to help people understand and appreciate hummingbirds and to provide a channel to help save the ones that are endangered.

Educational Resources

People of virtually any age can participate in the hobby of bird-watching. This site is sponsored by HomeAdvisor and some of the links are broken. However, there is still a lot of information available for beginning birders. 

"Bird watching is a rather low key, but thoroughly enjoyable hobby that is practiced all around the United States and in many other countries as well. Bird watchers venture out into natural areas to spot new and interesting birds that they haven't seen before. They may start out in places close to home, such as the backyard or a bird sanctuary, or venture out to more remote regions. On the whole, bird watching is a peaceful, relaxing activity that can also be quite exciting and educational. Bird watching not only teaches us about birds, but also about nature, habitats, and conservation."

My name is Chad Kremp, and I volunteer with a gardening club in my area. I help teach about attracting birds through gardening.

This is a hummingbird migration map, created by bird enthusiast Ernie Allison, which tracks hummingbird sightings by allowing users to enter the species they spotted, the local area and the date.
