This trip is by reservation only. There will be a maximum of 19 people in 5 cars. Carpooling will be necessary.
Join us for a trip to the pastures of southeastern Solano County to search for overwintering raptors & other winter visitors. We will search fields, perches and farm equipment. Prior trips have seen prairie falcons, merlins, golden eagles, ferruginous hawks, rough-legged hawks and mountain plovers. We hope to see these and many more species during this trip.
Beginning birders are welcome. Bring binoculars, water, snacks or lunch (though we don’t stop for this) and layers for winter weather. Please bring a spotting scope if you have one. Rain or high winds will cancel the trip.
Meet at the Marketplace Shopping Center (near Big 5 Sporting Goods, 1301 W. Covell just east of Hwy 113) at 7:30am, returning by early afternoon. This trip involves mostly driving and stopping, little walking is anticipated.
