We ventured out in the wind to the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge and it turned out to be one of our best visits yet. This time was also different because we went in the afternoon instead of our usual sunrise adventure. Let me tell you, the refuge does not disappoint at any hour of the day!
We saw Double-crested Cormorants, Western Kingbirds, Northern Shovelers, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Black Phoebe, Cinnamon Teal, Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets and a whole bunch of other "great" birds. They were all battling against the gusting wind, hanging onto their perches for dear life, and looking extra spectacular with their breeding plumage blowing all around.
This video might be my favorite one yet!
Let's go birding!
