Description

We will take a cruise down Old Humboldt Road looking for Phainopepla, Western Bluebird, and Rufous-crowned Sparrow and maybe pick up a Lewis's Woodpecker. Then after a brief stop at the east end of 20th Street, we'll head over to the Chico Seed Orchard to see what wintering passerines we can find, usually spotting some high country birds that like the pines such as the Red-breasted Nuthatch and Brown Creeper, and if we're lucky, maybe we'll spy a Varied Thrush or Red Crossbill. We'll finish the day with a visit to the Secret Trail Brewing Company to taste some local Chico ales. Food available for purchase, or you can bring a lunch. Bring binoculars, water, and a snack.
