Fodor's Review

Birders adore Point Blue (formerly the Point Reyes Bird Observatory), which lies in the southernmost part of Point Reyes National Seashore and is accessed through Bolinas. (Those not interested in birds might find it ho-hum.) The unstaffed Palomarin Field Station, open daily from sunrise to sunset, has excellent interpretive exhibits, including a comparative display of real birds' talons. The surrounding woods harbor more than 200 bird species. As you hike the quiet trails

through forest and along ocean cliffs, you're likely to see biologists banding birds to aid in the study of their life cycles. Visit Point Blue's website to find out when banding will occur; it's a fun time to come here.
