Meet at the park and ride at Pleasant Valley Road and Hwy 20 at 8:00AM to carpool. For those people down the hill call Dale to arrange a meeting place. Sutter NWR is just outside Yuba City and is often overlooked by birders but can offer large numbers of geese and waterfowl with easy viewing. We will also visit Colusa NWR which is just outside the town of Colusa where we expect to see waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds and songbirds. 
We should see well over 50 species including Greater White-fronted Goose, Snow Goose, Ross’s Goose, Cackling Goose, Green-winged Teal, American Wigeon, Northern Pintail, and Black-crowned Night-Heron. 
This trip is birding mostly by car. Bring food, drink, insect repellent, and dress for the weather. Trip will go rain or shine with exceptions for major storms. Call Dale the night before if weather is questionable. This is an all day trip.
