Walking, could involve distance but largely flat
We'll take a brief stop at the east end of 20th Street in hopes of seeing Burrowing Owl, Horned Lark and Rock Wren. Then 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. 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.
