Description

Wilbur Road in Thermalito offers a great variety of birding habitats, which makes it the ideal place for winter birding. The birds found here at this time of year range from waterbirds to raptors. We will start on the south end for a 1-mile walk to various parts of the Thermalito Afterbay shoreline, and then we'll head north through grasslands and various access points of the Afterbay. The trip ends in the wide-open range land that is home to a wide variety of raptors. Bring a lunch and hiking shoes.
