On Saturday, Jan. 26, Terry Colborn will lead an all-day trip to multiple birding spots in the greater Sacramento Valley, taking participants on a search for wintering shorebirds, ducks, geese, swans, hawks, owls and sandhill cranes.

The trip, which runs from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., will include a drive through the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, where the wintering waterfowl and shorebird numbers at this time of year can be impressive. The group also will visit the Nature Conservancy’s Cosumnes River Preserve south of Sacramento. The day will end at the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve for sunset viewing of waterfowl and cranes as they come in to roost.

Colborn is one of the area’s top birding experts and is happy to guide beginners as well as advanced birders. His knowledge and enthusiasm promise to make this trip a memorable experience for all who attend.

The tour is part of the Yolo Basin Foundation’s fundraising series, a “Gaggle of Gatherings,” which consists of a variety of field trips, parties and workshops offered throughout the year. “Birding with the Best” costs $65 per person and includes a gourmet picnic lunch. All funds raised will go to the Yolo Basin Foundation’s wetland education programs.

To reserve a spot on the tour, visit www.yolobasin.org and click on “Gaggle of Gatherings” or call the Yolo Basin Foundation at 530-758-0530. Yolo Basin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the appreciation and stewardship of wetlands and wildlife through education and innovative partnerships.
