We walked the Logan Creek Trail at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge at sunrise and it was pretty spectacular!
The wildflowers were just starting to bloom and we saw so many different birds. The second we got out of the car, we heard American Bitterns in the marsh, accompanied by Black Phoebes, Red-winged Blackbirds and Ring-necked Pheasants. During the three mile walk, we had several Bitterns fly out from the reeds that we didn't even know were there.
The peacefulness of the sun rising up and the clouds blowing across the sky was beautiful even without the lovely sounds of the birds and geese.
This part of the refuge is only open from February 15th - June 30th, so we will definitely be returning in a couple weeks once the weather clears up again!
I put together a video from our visit to show you just how picturesque this area is...
Here's the link to the brochure and map for this trail. We took Loop A, but you can also take Loop B which adds on two more miles to the walk.
Let's go birding!
