Get the Sierra Valley Birder's Guidebook
Sierra Valley is a birding paradise all year round. From vast numbers of birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway in spring and fall, to breeding songbirds, waders, and waterbirds throughout summer, to raptors in the winter, Sierra Valley’s habitats support the Sierra Nevada’s greatest diversity and abundance of birds.
Feather River Land Trust and Plumas Audubon Society teamed up to create a full color, pocket-sized Sierra Valley Birder’s Guidebook, an essential birding tool for novice and experienced birders alike.
