First 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 or Brown Creeper, and if we're lucky, maybe we'll spy a Varied Thrush or Red Crossbill. Next a stop at the Fair Street Marsh. We 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.
