Raptor Run (part 2)
February 16 @ 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM
Join us in our search for Raptors in Butte County! We will be traveling by car to Cottonwood Rd and Nelson Ave to view 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 the surrounding power poles. We will then travel to Richvale and check out the fields for Swans, Geese, and Ducks! Maybe we’ll get lucky and be able to find Trumpeter Swans, that infrequently visit us! Bring binoculars, spotting scopes, water, lunch, walking shoes and proper clothing for the expected weather conditions. Light rain will not cancel. We will meet at the first parking area at the Chico Park & Ride at 8:30 AM. The trip will be 5-6 hours, so plan accordingly. Contact: Matt Forster, email@example.com
