Yolo Bypass Wild Life Area


Good morning to all.  Been a little slow on posting, this time around.  DesertDale took me out "birding" this morning to one of our favorite spots  when we are in the Sacramento area, along one of the busiest throughways on I-80.   He even took me to lunch at "Los Gallos", I guess you must think it is a Mexican restaurant, will if you did you guessed right.

The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is a area  not far from Sacramento where birders and hunters enjoy the area.  They even have  schoolchildren  come to the area for the  experience of nature and education.
It is also located in the heart of the Pacific Flyway.   Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area has more than 16,000 acres in the  wildlife refuge.
The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is open all year round from sunrise to sunset except for Christmas Day.
I must say about all we had the pleasure of viewing today was Red-Wing Black Birds.



The 16,000-acre Yolo Wildlife Area is one of the largest public/private restoration projects with 3,700-acres of land in the Yolo Bypass floodway restored to wetlands and other associated habitats, with more restoration in the works. The California Department of Fish & Wildlife manages the Yolo Wildlife Area to promote an increase in waterfowl and other bird populations.  (info from goggle)

Hope you all enjoy this posting as much as I did lunch.  Kitfoxgal
