Sagehen Creek Field Station (UC-Berkeley) - Birds (SCFS-Birds)

Sagehen Creek Field Station was founded in 1951 and is located within the +/- 9000 acre Sagehen Experimental Forest. The basin encompasses a diverse cross-section of the central Sierra Nevada from the Pacific Crest (el. 8500 ft) to the eastern slope (el. 6000 ft). Habitats include yellow pine, mixed conifer, and red fir forests, as well as brush fields, scattered mountain meadows, and fens. The collection is largely taken from the basin in the 1960's, though there are some non-local specimens collected by the same researchers and students as well.
