This is a four-hour birding hike led and organized by the Travis Audubon Society along the river, up a creek, and back. One-and-a-half miles each way, for a total of three miles. The trail is dirt, and the walking easy, except for a short climb up the slope of the river bank and back down on the return trip.
Habitat ranges from old growth riparian, to newer growth, and some open, mesic areas.
Target species are Bald Eagle, Pileated Woodpecker, Greater Roadrunner, and early spring migrants.
The Audubon Society will meet at 7:00 AM sharp at the Hornsby Bend Research Center to carpool to the refuge. Contact George Kerr for information on meeting at the refuge. After the hike we will picnic next to the river. Details will be provided to registrants.
Participation is free. Membership in Travis Audubon Society is encouraged, but not required. Registration is required, and is limited to 15 participants. Please consider contributing to, and/or participating in, Birdathon.
