* Return To the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

Back to the Sacramento National wildlife Refuge with my hiking partners from the Chico/Oroville Outdoor Adventurers (COOA).

There weren't as many geese and waterfowl present, but there seemed to be a lot more raptors, so it was still a great trip. I also noticed a lot more Canada Geese in the refuge then the week before.


Early morning fly-by.

Sun raises over a layer of fog.



A Great Egret.

Another Great Egret not far from the viewing platform.



Not a good picture, but one of only a couple fly-outs on this trip.

Please stay in your vehicle! Haha!

I believe this is a cross-beaked juvenile eagle that lives on the refuge.


Snow and Roos geese with a few Canada.




A hunting Redtail.
