Sacramento NWR 12/1

Denise and David Hamilton

Hello All,

Made a trip to Sacramento NWR on 12/1. Air more hazy than 'foggy', but boy was the fog thick driving home last night!

Highlights: The continued presence of THOUSANDS of Snow Geese, with Ross's and Greater White-fronted. The refuge was full of geeese (most at the pond by the observation platform.) We also drove around off the refuge and found THOUSANDS more in the fields on Road Z between Roads 48 & 67. MANY Tundra Swans were in the fields on Road R ( just north of Road 39.)

Other species of note: At the viewing platform- one Orange-crowned Warbler and a House Wren. Also on the refuge saw one male Eurasian Wigeon. Adult Bald Eagle (on the edge of the water with a Black-necked stilt walking by) & Peregrine Falcon seen right along the road beyond the viewing platform.

Best birding,
Denise & David Hamilton
