Description

The Feather River Trail is a great place to bird, and in the winter, we will get to see many species of diving ducks including Buffleheads, Common Mergansers, Common Goldeneyes and with some luck a possible Barrow's Goldeneye. Join us on this easy walk along the paved trail in Oroville to see Herons, Egrets, Phainopepla, and maybe a Bald Eagle! If we have time, we will head over to the Feather River Nature Center and bird around the Diversion Pool where we might get to see the scarce Rufous-crowned Sparrow. Bring snacks, water and binoculars.
