NANPA Regional – Central Valley (CA) Birds

December 2, 2021 - December 5, 2021
Lodi, CA SD United States + Google Map
$495

In the heart of California’s Central Valley, thousands of acres of flooded farmlands provide a winter home for tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes that migrate along the Pacific Flyway from Siberia and Alaska. Sandhill Cranes sleep at night in standing shallow water so they can hear approaching predators like coyotes and bobcats. Before sunrise they awaken, their unmistakable vocalizations audible for miles. Then they fly off in small groups, heading for nearby fields to forage all day, and return at sunset en masse. Their exit and re-entrance are both incredible spectacles, often accentuated visually by dramatic sunrises, sunsets and wisps of tule fog.
