Co budeš dělat

On our adventure, we'll explore one of the great winter wetland areas in Northern California, Gray Lodge Wildlife Area. First, we'll explore the check-in location, bird there and view the wildlife exhibit. Next, we'll walk several paths through the wetlands and riparian areas and take some time at the boardwalk viewing platform, where there are thousands of birds to see. We'll take a break for some delicious food for lunch and then, we'll meander our way through the auto-loop, taking our time to stop and see all the birds and other wildlife that may reveal themselves. It's wonderful to see the afternoon sunlight on the water and the birds. There will be skeins of waterfowl in the sky at times, and plenty of them swimming or walking around and they are easy to see. We'll see many species of ducks (wigeon, shovelers, teal, pintail), grebes, geese, swans, herons, egrets, kingfishers, and hawks. I've lucked out with American Bittern, Green Heron, Red-shouldered Hawk, Eared Grebe, and Sandhill Cranes. Lots of winter passerines with Yellow-rumped Warblers, woodpeckers, possible Golden Eagles, and much more! Cost covers lunch and entry fee to the wildlife area.

This will not be strenuous, but come prepared to walk on dirt trails. I will have bird ID books. Don't forget binoculars!

If much rain is predicted, we may have to reschedule. Light rain, we go!

I've been a bird guide and biologist for over 30 yrs in many places: TX, NM, AZ, CC, etc. I've helped citizen science programs, like Breeding Bird Surveys and Christmas Bird Counts, done wildlife population studies and nest monitoring. I served for 10 yrs on the board of a W. TX Audubon Society, including 2 yrs as President. I’ve traveled around the world for birdwatching (Tanzania, Uganda, Borneo, Belize, Costa Rica, China, Australia, Bonaire, to name a few, including most of the U.S. and offshore pelagics). I'm very passionate about conservation and ecology, which includes my profession, and love sharing my specialized knowledge with both children & adults. Other birdwatching experiences I host are: Cosumnes Preserve (http://bit.ly/2KFgVq2), Putah Creek/Yolo Bypass (http://bit.ly/2Zg3chu), & Sandhill Cranes (https://bit.ly/317rA7Z)

Kde budeš

The Gray Lodge Wildlife Area is managed by the California Department of Wildlife. You can find a link to it here: https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/lands/places-to-visit/gray-lodge-wa. It's a wonderful spot where waterfowl and grassland birds from the Pacific Flyway congregate in huge numbers each winter. Peak viewing times are December and January, before the birds start to fly north again.

Our day of bird watching at Gray Lodge was a great learning experience in waterfowl identification. We have ventured out to the Pacific Flyway on our own in past seasons though usually end the day a bit frustrated at our inability to identify many of the birds we encountered. Having Ellen's expertise and guidance in naming the many birds we saw made the day much more enjoyable and entertaining. Ellen's passion for wildlife and her skill at imparting information was contagious. We would definitely book another experience with her.

Host was smart and easy to share information and experience Wildlife refuge was easy to walk with added feature of auto tour loop. Ellen navigated some pretty large flocks of various birds and pointed out the rare and colorful Very safe and cozy ride along Trailblazer who increased my ability to motivate my family to go back and check it out
