At the Sacramento and Colusa Wildlife Refuges, 05-06-19

Herons, Egret and Beaver at the American River Bend Park

I was able to sleep in a little bit this morning, but was still out the door by about 6:15 am. I went over to the American River Bend Park and walked around for about three hours.  Parts of the bike trail were closed off while it’s being repaved, and there were detours all over […]
