Cosumnes River Preserve Adventure

This is one of the sites DesertDale and Kitfoxgal goes to is the Yolo By-Pass for birding , when they are in the Sacramento area.  We see many thing beside the birds, such as this powered parachute .  DesertDale took the photo of it as it was flying over head.
The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is between Sacramento and Davis off I-80.   It is a site for bird watchers, hunters and schoolchildren.  It is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway.  There are some 16,600
acres.  
We had the pleasure of viewing these birds and the fisherman fishing.
Savannah Sparrow they eat mostly insects and seeds.
The Snowy Egret  breeds in colonies.
This is a walkway.
 Just another viewing site.
Kitfoxgal enjoyed this site for a closer view of the pond.  It gave you a great view of this pond.  
 The Black-necked Stilt and the Black-crowned Night-heron are just a few of the birds we see.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do every time go there Birding.  It is some 20 miles from our base site at Robert and Olivia Lawson in Rio Linda.
