Maxwell and Colusa National Wildlife Refuge – Leader: Joyce Bond Sunday, February 7th, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
February 7 @ 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
We’ll leave the Chico Park & Ride at 8:30 am and stop at the Maxwell Cemetery to look for the Vermilion Flycatcher. From there, we’ll drive a few miles to a spot along Maxwell-Sites Road where Canyon Wrens hang out. Then we’ll head to the nearby Colusa NWR, where we’ll first visit the viewing platform. After a lunch break, we’ll drive around the auto tour loop. The refuge hosts huge numbers of wintering waterfowl and shorebirds, and you can see a large roost of Black-crowned Night Herons along the auto loop. Heavy rain cancels, but we could still do just the auto loop in light rain. Limit of 5 vehicles.
Contact Joyce Bond at email@example.com or (530) 720-0986 to reserve a spot.
