This year we are refuge birding to the north.  Saturday will be spent birding the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, and ending the day at Colusa NWR.  Meet Saturday morning at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Kiosk parking area.  Sunday, we will begin the day at the Colusa-Sacramento River State Wildlife Area, on the Sacramento River, in Colusa, then travel to the Llano Seco unit of the Sacramento NWR.
Directions: The Sacramento NWR is located north of Williams off of I-5.  Use the Norman Road exit and follow the signs.  Driving time is about 2 hours from the Bay Area.  There is an entrance fee (Duck stamp/hunting license/day pass.)  The Colusa Wildlife Area is located right in the town of Colusa, along the Sacramento River. Take Hwy 20 east from Williams, and in the town of Colusa, continue straight across Market and Main Street, and up the levee to the park entrance.  This is a fee area also.
Lodging is suggested in Williams, where several hotel/motels are available: Ramada Inn, Granzellas's Inn, Traveler's Inn, Motel 6, Econo Lodge. Those who wish can camp at the Colusa Wildlife Area in Colusa.   
Trip will go rain or shine with only heavy flooding cancelling.
