Lake Solano west of Winters is a magnet for both year-round residents and migratory birds at this time of year. Local residents are invited to join volunteers Barbara Cooper and Kristina Reese as they point out which feathered friends are ringing in the new year at Lake Solano.

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

“Listen to amazing facts and fables as you stroll along Putah Creek on this ‘not so usual’ bird walk,” a news release said.

Visitors are reminded to dress in layers and be prepared for cold, rainy weather.

“And don’t forget to bring binoculars, cameras and an inquiring mind with you,” the release said

The bird program begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at the boat ramp/canoe rental area on the day-use side of Lake Solano Park & Campground, 8685 Pleasants Valley Road in Winters. The presentation is free but parking costs $5 per vehicle, payable at the entrance to the day-use area.

No RSVP is necessary. The outing will be canceled in the event of heavy rain.

For more information, visit www.solanocounty.com/parks, call 707-432-0150, ext. 200, or email volunteer@solanolandtrust.org. For same-day information, call 530-795-2990.
