“This field trip is sold out. Please contact Dave Bradford to be put on the waiting list.”

The primary goal of this trip is to see greater sage grouse on a lek (strutting ground). On Saturday we will do general birding at Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge and Key Pittman Wildlife Management Area, and then continue to Ely, Nevada for the night. On Sunday we will rise very early to meet Aaron Ambos of Southern Nevada Water Authority. He will lead us to a monitored lek that is expected to have a number of strutting males. Afterwards, we will do some birding in Spring Valley, expecting to see golden eagles, rough-legged hawks, and ferruginous hawks, and then return to Las Vegas.  Dress for cold.
