Birding Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park by Kayak

We’ll have a unique opportunity to observe fall bird migration in a wilderness area “where the waters come together…” Located in eastern Shasta County, California, Ahjumawi derives its name from a large system of freshwater springs created by the mingling of Big Lake, Tule River, Ja- She Creek, Lava Creek and Fall River. This wilderness area of lava rock and flowing waters features both sagebush and juniper populations as well as coniferous and oak forests. It is accessible only by boat. We will hopefully observe resident and fall migratory birds, including Lewis’s and Nutall’s Woodpeckers, Oak Titmice, Short-eared and Northern Pygmy Owls, as well as ducks and possibly Lawrence’s Goldfinch. We may also glimpse other wildlife including mule deer, bear and cougar as we travel by kayak and on foot within view of Mount Shasta and Lassen Peak. We'll camp in one of three primitive campgrounds. Kayaks provided by Eagle Eyes Kayak Guiding Service.
