Sandhill Cranes - Cosumnes River Preserve, Staten Island, and Woodbridge

Hits : 243

Leader: Stephanie Floyd


Each fall Sandhill Cranes return to the Central Valley where they feed, socialize and rest in the fields and fly in to roost in the wetlands for the night. Tundra Swans, Cackling Geese, Snow and Ross's Geese, rafts of winter ducks, and other waterfowl and raptors are commonly seen. We'll bird the boardwalk at Cosumnes River Preserve and drive by the Desmond Road ponds,
check out Staten Island, and make our way to Woodbridge Ecological Reserve for sunset fly-in at 4:45 PM. The field trip ends at Woodbridge where you can easily get back on I-5 for the drive home. Rain, flooding, or heavy fog cancels. Wear layers and bring snacks and water. All are welcome, and pre-registration is not required. Cosumnes River Preserve is about 70 miles
from Livermore.

Directions: Take I-580 east to I-205 east to I-5. Take I-5 north to the Twin Cities Road exit. Go east on Twin Cities Road about 1 mile and turn right on Franklin Blvd. Continue about a mile or so to the visitor center (facilities available). Look for the group in the parking lot or on the boardwalk. 

Note: CDFW requires you to carry a Lands Pass at Woodbridge. For general information on Lands Passes go to https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/licensing/lands-pass. To purchase a Lands Pass
