Great Backyard Bird Count 2021


Hot Spots to Bird in February 

Luckily, bird watching provides welcome comfort

to the solitary birder, even when group events are

impractical. Here are four locations to get you
and your family started. Visit the events page for eBird links that list
recently seen birds at each location.


  • Yokohl Valley Drive - Wintering raptors and grassland birds

  • Plaza Park, Visalia - A Neotropic cormorant has been seen amongst the Double-crested cormorants

  • Pixley National Wildlife Refuge - Wintering ducks, cranes, shorebirds and grassland birds

  • Hanford Waste Treatment Plant - Ducks, geese & shore birds



Due to Covid-19 restrictions (Audubon, state & local), there are a few new rules that need to be followed in order comply with those restrictions and to protect our volunteers and family members:

  • No sharing of vehicles with out-of-family/living groups (everyone in their own vehicle);

  • Volunteers must maintain 6’ physical distance from anyone not in their family/living group;

  • Everyone should have a mask with them for circumstances where 6’ distance cannot be maintained.

  • Binoculars and spotting scopes cannot be shared. 

The 24th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is coming soon.


Be on the lookout for birds around you February 12-15 (Friday through Monday) and share your love of birds with the world: click here for more details from ebird. 

A tribute to Pennie Lewis


On Sep.27, 2020 we lost Pennie Lewis, a beloved member of Tulare Kings Audubon Chapter. The Lewis family (Frank, Pennie, Michael, and Christopher) joined the Chapter in 1987.  Actively participating in meetings and fieldtrips became a regular part of their lives. Long time members fondly recall what a wonderful person she was and how much they enjoyed birding with her and Frank. Click here to read more.
