Del Norte County is one of the most exciting and scenic places to visit in search of birds in California. This tiny county in the most northwestern corner of the state is known for its diversity of habitats; majestic redwood forests, dramatic shoreline, the West Coast’s largest coastal lagoon, open and forested sand dunes, hidden ponds, year-round creeks, and pristine rivers.
It has recorded 422 species of birds, more than eighteen entire states and nine Canadian territories and provinces. The rugged natural beauty of the California Redwoods Birding Trail is unrivaled. This is a place where ancient redwoods thrive, rivers run free, wild salmon still spawn, and rare bird, plant, and fish species rebound rather than disappear.
