More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss


Need to bump up your Yuba County Life List? Asher and Liam will take you around this underbirded county, looking for hard-to-find birds over all elevations. We will start in the mountains in the morning, looking for Woodpeckers and Chickadees, then work our way down through the foothills and Collins Lake in search of Canyon Wren and diving ducks. We will end the day in the rice fields, where we will look for ducks, gulls, and maybe Mountain Bluebirds if we are very lucky. This will be a good trip for those heading south on Sunday, where you'll have a jump start on your way home.
