Event Description

Mike Moran will meet guests at Big Break, home to 70 species of birds and several species of mammals including 27 special-status wildlife species and 6 special-status wildlife species that are known to occur. Nesting has been confirmed for black rails, northern harriers, white-tailed kites, and yellow-breasted chats. Many wading birds, including great blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets, green herons and white-faced ibis forage in the tidal slough’s freshwater marshes. These areas also provide habitat for Western pond turtles, beavers, muskrats, and river otters which forage and potentially den at Big Break.
