The public is invited to join the Yolo Audubon Society on a bird-watching trip to Cosumnes River Preserve on Sunday, Jan. 12. The trip will include opportunities to see the preserve when it has a maximum number of waterfowl, plus, hawks, songbirds and other water birds. As a bonus, the area abounds with sandhill cranes.
Participants should dress in layers, and to enhance the enjoyment of the outing, bring binoculars, spotting scopes, water and snacks. This outing will include a moderate amount of gentle walking.
Trip leader Mary Schiedt will meet the group at 7:30 a.m. at the park-and-ride lot at Second Street and Mace Boulevard, behind Ikeda’s, to car-pool and provide driving directions. A midafternoon return to Davis is expected.
For more information, call Schiedt at 530-400-7094.
