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 MLahiff@aol.com 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
