At a Glance

A local ornithologist leads this quest to view the native and migrating species amid the splendor of Yosemite's lesser-known south rim. Habitat in the national park includes a lodgepole pine forest — home to Williamson's Sapsuckers, Black-backed Woodpeckers and Hammond's Flycatchers — as well as Henness Ridge, a little-known birding spot, and additional bird-spotting habitat that includes orchards, oak forests, creeks, rivers and meadows.
