Sacramento Wildlife Preserve Bird Report

Where to photograph in California – Yahoo Groups  (Calphoto) reports that the Sacramento Wildlife Preserve has the usual flurry of winter birds. Here is the report

The National Wildlife Refuges are loaded with birds, including but not limited to Ross’ Geese, Snow Geese, Greater White Fronted Geese, Ring Necked Pheasants, White Faced Ibis, Black Crowned Night Herons, Great Egret, Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, Northern Shovellers, Pintails, Ruddy Ducks, Green Winged Teals, American Wigeons, Mallards, Coots, Bald Eagles, Red Tailed Hawks, Red Shouldered Hawks, Northern Harriers etc etc etc. We did see Columbian Black Tailed Deer and there were reports of River Otters, but we did not see any. *Please remember to stay in your vehicles in the Auto Tour Area $275 fine if you get caught, and leave dogs on the leash (one family was blatant about ignoring both rules). I suggest calling the SAC NWR visitors office to check the possibility of Tule Fog making photography nearly impossible. SAC and Colusa are the best – I have rarely had good luck at Delevan, except one year when all the White Faced Ibis were hanging out there
