Yolo By-Pass Wildlife Area Adventure

 
DesertDale and Kitfoxgal has finally got to the point of having time to do the thing that they had time before, like posting on "My Blog" .  It has been a long time, and missed it.  Hope you enjoy this posting as much as I had posting it.

DesertDale, he just happened to have his camera with him,  is walking out on one of the docks the "Preserve" has installed at the  Yolo By-Pass Wildlife Area. 

This is a view of Hwy 80 from inside the "Wildlife Area".  It very easy to find for  birders, hunters and of course for the schools to teach the children about  outdoor  life.   The "Wildlife Area" has more then 17,770 acres.  It is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway .  Plus the fishing is great and there are site for the boaters to launch their boats.

The "Great Egret" are widespread.  The photo above show them standing at the edge of the water, as they often do.  Their population had been declining by people hunting them for their feathers.  Their recovery has been because of the Audubon Society.

DesertDales prize photo of the "Red Tail Hawk" looks.  He snapped it as we drove along the
Yolo  By-Pass Road.  They are seen in Alaska, Canada and to Panama.

Hope you enjoy this posting, as it took a long time to post it.  Hopefully it will not take so long on the next posting
