Join us for a trip to the pastures of southeastern Solano County to search for resident and overwintering raptors & Mountain Plovers. We will search fields, perches and farm equipment. Prior trips have spotted 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. Little walking is anticipated. Wear appropriate winter wear, the area is generally windy. Bring water, snacks and/or lunch on the go. Bring binoculars and a spotting scope, if you have one. STRONG winds or heavy rain cancels the trip. All levels of birders are welcome.
Plan on carpooling for this trip as most of the trip involves driving and part of the trip has few places to pull off the roadway. 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 to mid-afternoon. Leader: Sharon Kirkpatrick (530) 220-3735 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: YAS does not “arrange” carpools, and all rides are private agreements between driver and riders.
