Audubon leads field trip to Napa River, Bay Trail

By From page A8 | March 14, 2014

Did you know that adjacent to the Napa River, in the community of American Canyon, is a recently restored shoreline walking trail?

To learn about the birding opportunities of this area, all are welcome to join the Yolo Audubon Society on a field trip to the Napa River and Bay Trail on Saturday. There is a large tidal lagoon where many species of birds rest.

Participants will enjoy a short, level walk during which the incoming tide will bring foraging birds closer to the shore. The northward bird migration has begun, so trip participants may be treated surprises among the expected birds — sandpipers, godwits, willets and ducks. All along the walkway, the open vistas looking west toward the wetlands enhance this outdoor activity.

Participants will meet at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot at The Marketplace shopping center, 1411 W. Covell Blvd. in Davis.
