Bird folklore featured at Lake Solano walk

By
From page B3 | February 01, 2013 |

“Folklore of Lake Solano Birds” is the topic of a free presentation from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Lake Solano Park west of Winters. Volunteer Barbara Cooper will talk about why this area is a magnet for both year-round residents and migratory birds.

Visitors will learn how birds have figured in myths and religions of the world, and other bird lore. For example, did you know the nest of the golden eagle can weigh as much as a small car? Did you know the expression “eat crow,” which refers to making a difficult apology, is derived from eating the tough, unappetizing flesh of older crows?

Guests will listen to facts and fables as they stroll along Putah Creek during the bird walk. Dress in layers and be prepared for cold, wet weather. Bring binoculars, cameras and an inquiring mind.

Participants will meet at the boat ramp/canoe rental area on the day use side of Lake Solano Park, 8685 Pleasants Valley Road near Winters. The presentation is free, and parking is $5 per vehicle, payable at the entrance to the day use area. No RSVP is necessary. Heavy rain will cancel the event.

For more information, visit www.solanocounty.com/parks; call 707-432-0150, ext. 200; or email [email protected]. For same-day information, call 530-795-2990.
