Join us in our search for raptors in Butte County! We will be traveling by car to Cottonwood Rd, then the Forebay, leading to Nelson Ave to view the returning hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls. Cottonwood Road boasts one of the best landscapes in Northern California for raptors. Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawks are regular visitors and Peregrine and Prairie Falcons can be seen perched on many of the adjacent power poles. Bring warm clothing, binoculars, spotting scopes, water, and walking shoes. Light rain will not cancel. We will meet at the first parking area at the Chico Park & Ride at 9am. The trip will be 5-6 hours, so plan accordingly! Matthew Forster, firstname.lastname@example.org, 619-347-2269.
