Sierra Valley is an unusual place—a vast, high mountain valley rimmed with forested mountains. The valley floor is not completely flat, but is slightly undulating, creating expanses of marsh alternating with sagebrush. It is not quite Great Basin country, and not quite mountain country, but shares characteristics of both regions. Specialty birds: Resident—Black-billed Magpie. Summer—White-faced Ibis, Cinnamon Teal, Sandhill Crane, Mountain Bluebird, Sage Thrasher, Brewer’s Sparrow, Yellow-headed Blackbird. Winter—Ferruginous Hawk. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
