 New Field Trip:  Nevada Year Round – per your schedule!

Yellowbilled Tours has Nevada divided into two areas, northern Reno area and southern Las Vegas area. The reason YBT has done this is because the distance between regions is 465 miles.  Each region is a separate field trip but can be combined with an air flight between Reno and Las Vegas.

Area 1: Is Northern Nevada with airport pick-up in Reno.

This field trip is a two-day minimum. It includes the eastern California using Hwy 395 hot spots, then into Sierra Valley, Pyramid Lake, Truckee Meadows, south into the Carson Valley River Ranch and wetland areas. This field trip is great for wintering raptors or summer mountain song bird species.

 An additional side trip is to Northeastern California, birding Eagle Lake and the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge. This add-on requires a three week advance reservation and is a three day trip.

Birder Testimonial: July 5, 2018

I had a great birding trip with Yellowbilled Tours in early July.  I saw lots of birds and Rich did a great job of explaining the local history and ecology as well as presenting documentation of the birds seen during the tour. Ken Alt, Fairbanks Alaska:





Area 2: Southern Nevada with airport pick-up in Las Vegas.

Birder testimonial:  April 27, 2018

The Las Vegas field trip was wonderful! Justin was terrific, such a knowledgeable birder. We did desert hot spots to Mt Charles high elevation birding. His sharp eye help me pick up several life birds. Joy, Petaluma, Cal.

Our local guide, Justin Streit, will tailor your trip to fit your needs so you can see the most species possible or find that one life bird. The trip can be adapted for you, whether you have a day in Las Vegas or enough time for two days of birding unique habitats from the Mojave Desert to Mt. Charleston.

This southern Nevada field trip is a one-day (7-hour) minimum covering local hot spots, and is tailored for the Las Vegas visitor who wishes to bird around their other planned activities.

Justin is a member of the Nevada State Bird Records Committee and is a professional ornithologist and avian ecologist with private and government experience. He knows southern Nevada birds and their habitats. His Nevada state bird list is 345 species including 328 species in Clark County (Las Vegas area).

Additional side trip: A second and third day can be added to cover expanded desert (Death Valley NP) and high elevation (Mt. Charleston) ecosystems.

Fee matrix for both Area 1 and 2: A day field trip is seven (7) hours at $35.00 per hour using your vehicle and fuel, or $50.00 per hour using YBT vehicle, which includes airport or hotel pick-up and drop-off and guiding fee. Lodging and meals are not included. Fuel is covered by client at the end of each day. On overnight field trips, a lodging surcharge of $90.00 will apply. Gratuity is optional. One-week advance notice is required.
