Red-naped-Sapsucker-at-Cove-EastYou know what they say… Birds of a feather flock together.  And boy do they.

If you love birds, join the South Shore bird network at Cove East every Wednesday morning and learn more about Tahoe birds all year round.  If you’re lucky you’ll see our resident Beaver in the Truckee River, and a Hooded Merganser, Great-Blue Heron, and Red-tailed Hawk.

Other birds who frequent this paradise year round include Bald Eagles, Hawks, Grebes, Mergansers, American Coots, Ravens, Gulls, Northern Flickers, Steller’s Jays, Mountain Chickadees, Red-naped Sapsuckers (shown here), and Black-billed Magpies, to name a few.

Led by the unflappable local birding expert, Don Harriman, and Tahoe native Lynn Harriman, Tahoe birders meet every Wednesday at 8 am at Cove East to identify the weekly progression of birds.
