Join us at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area to explore the lake, levees, and marsh for wintering waterfowl, Common Gallinules, egrets, herons, and grebes.  Osprey are found around the lake and ponds, while the trees hold woodpeckers and nuthatches.  Notable sightings in past years included Bald Eagle, Golden Eagle, Great-tailed Grackle, California Thrasher, Common Loon, Common and Hooded Merganser, Wilson's Snipe and Peregrin Falcon.  Wide, level trails make walking fairly easily except for one short, steep uphill section to get onto the levee. Scopes are helpful.
Directions: From I-580 eastbound, take the Santa Rita Road exit, keep right and follow signs for Downtown to merge onto Santa Rita Road.  Turn left on Valley Avenue and left on Stanley Boulevard.  Turn right in to the park. Meet in the first parking lot by the swimming beach. $6 parking fee.
