Birding Northern California

Birding Northern California

Lake Tahoe is one of the gems of the Sierra Nevada. The portion of the lake on the southwestern corner is almost all under the ownership of the USDA Forest Service. Fallen Leaf Lake is another gem, and is often overlooked because it lies off to one side of the highway. Mount Tallac (9,735 feet) rises directly above the lake, and displays a snowy cross on its face in spring and early summer. Taylor Creek, which runs between Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe, is a spawning site for runs of kokanee salmon in fall. Specialty birds: Resident—Blue Grouse, White-headed Woodpecker, Pygmy Nuthatch, Cassin’s Finch. Summer—Osprey, Calliope Hummingbird, Western Wood-Pewee, Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak. Winter—Bald Eagle. Migrant—Rufous Hummingbird. 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.
