Birding Staten Island and Cosumnes River Preserve

January 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

It’s 90 minutes from Oakland and Berkeley to these Central Valley sites. The Nature Conservancy’s Staten Island is managed for the Sandhill Cranes, and the flooded fields are likely to have a variety of ducks, geese, and Tundra Swans.

We’ll meet at Staten Island at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Participants have two options:

  1. A day trip to Staten Island and Cosumnes, with a lunch break on the porch at the Cosumnes Visitor Center.
  2. Continuing on, driving 100+ miles north, staying overnight in Willows, with an option for dinner together, and then on Sunday visits to Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, to see Snow Geese, Ross’s Geese, White-faced Ibis, and a variety of ducks and raptors, and then on the way south on I-5, stop in Maxwell to visit the Vermilion Flycatcher, and then Colusa NWR.

The trip is limited to 25 participants to ensure a great experience. Sign up by email to Maureen beginning at noon on Monday, December 9.  More details and suggestions for places to stay in Willows will be provided.  (Questions to Maureen before December 9 are welcome.)

Optional overnight stay in Willows for Sacramento and Colusa NWRs
Saturday, January 25, with optional extension to Sunday, January 26
