Re: Sewer Pond Birding, Elk Grove?

Andy Engilis

These ponds are part of the Sac-Yolo Mosquito Vector Control and not open for birding.  They are counted each Rio Cosumnes Christmas Count.


The ponds and wetlands on Camden Park behind these ponds actually can be god birding in winter.

Hi Sally, 


Google Maps says that it is Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito & Vector Control. I'm guessing they are raising mosquitofish in those ponds. From the street view you can see at least some of the ponds through the fence from the sidewalk. I doubt that other access is possible. Good birding.

Does anyone know what these ponds are? Looks like sewage treatment. Anyone know if they are open for birding?
