Las Cienegas Grasslands IBA Survey 2 - Thursday Feb 7
Grassland driving survey with emphasis on finding Chestnut-collared Longspurs - the species that qualified this site as a Global IBA. The strategy is to drive slowly along an assigned route and walk to cattle tanks and ponds to wait for flocks potentially coming in to drink. We will also walk through patches of habitat to hopefully flush flocks of grassland birds.
This year we will also be assesing native vrs non-native grasses as we survey.
