On this trip we will visit the Colusa and Sutter National Wildlife Refuges, grasslands around the Sutter Buttes, and, time permitting, the Bobelaine Preserve. We will visit a variety of habitats, including agricultural fields, mudflats, and riparian areas and we will be looking for remaining waterfowl, arriving shorebirds, migrating neotropicals, a variety of sparrows, and owls and raptors. While there will be some walking, viewing will be primarily from different stopping spots on the trip.
Meet at 8 am (Daylight Savings time) at the Woodland Jack-in-the Box parking lot (southeast corner of the intersection of County road 102 and Main Street in Woodland; Google map here). We will carpool from there. This is an all-day trip so bring a lunch, water and snacks. Be aware of the predicted weather on the day of the trip and dress accordingly. Rain or high winds will cancel the trip.
