Cranes, geese, swans, ducks, shorebirds and of course . . . lots of sparrows. In the morning, we will leisurely bird the trails through the riparian forest near the visitor center and in the adjacent marsh. After lunch on the deck at the visitor’s center, we will be roadside birding by marshes and fields along Desmond and Bruceville Roads watching all the time for the Peregrine Falcon that frequents a nearby microwave tower.
Meet at 7:00 a.m. in the Park-N-Ride lot off of Mace Boulevard (northeast of Highway 80 and just down from Ikeda’s Market) for carpooling. Bring your lunch, binoculars and spotting scope if you have one. Dress appropriately for the weather that day which could range from warm and sunny to cool and foggy. Let’s hope for no rain. We expect to finish by midafternoon.
If you have any questions, contact your leader, Sid England at (530) 756-7882 or asenglnd [at] pacbell [dot] net.
