eBird Report - Oak Grove Park (Ripon)--excluding city WTP, Feb 27, 2022 PLUS Tuesday’s birding destination

Jim Rowoth


I had a very pleasant visit to Oak Grove (Ripon) yesterday morning, joined by three other birders. We didn’t gave anything particularly unusual, but the park is lush and green for now, and we had respectable bird activity. I’ve copied the eBird report below.

For tomorrow (Tuesday) I’m heading to White Slough Wildlife Area. For anyone interested in coming along, let’s meet in the Flag City McDonalds parking lot at 7:00 am. Expect to walk from 3-4 miles; bring water & snack. We should be done by noon, but that will depend on the birds.
