      The Experience

      Did you know the Bay Area is one of the best birding locations in the world? Discover the diversity and beauty of Northern California’s wildlife when you join preeminent birding guide, Daniel Edelstein for a private tour.

      With over 30 years of experience studying birds in the San Francisco Bay Area, Daniel is able to identify hundreds of bird species by warble alone. You and up to 3 of your friends will learn his secrets while on the lookout for rare and endangered species. Choose from several locations throughout the North Bay and encounter any number of area-specific birds, including the northern spotted owl, marbled murrelet, hermit warbler, brown pelican, and the famed California condor. Perfect for avid and casual bird watchers alike, this is a unique experience that will forever change the way you see our feathered friends.
