The Yolo Audubon Society is hosting a hike up Rayhouse Road during spring migration on Sunday, April 6. Participation in this birding adventure is free to the public.

Participants should meet at 7 a.m. in the Esparto Super Market parking lot Esparto. The approximate time of return to the market is 1 p.m.

Rayhouse Road traverses riparian, oak woodland and chaparral habitats in the hills of northwest Yolo County. Participants may encounter some early migrants, but there are many interesting resident birds like pileated and hairy woodpeckers, Hutton’s vireo, and Bell’s sparrow.

The hike to Frog Pond, about a 5-mile loop from the parking area, involves a moderate gain in elevation, and is not considered “strenuous,” Rayhouse Road is not currently being maintained by Yolo County; there is no vehicular access into this important birding area.

Participants may want to bring binoculars, sunscreen, insect repellent, layered clothing and water.

This field trip will be canceled in the event of heavy rain. Contact trip leader, Will Rockey, (530-908-3785 or wlrockey@gmail.com) with questions or for more information about this trip.
