Delta Birdwatching and Sketching Cruise
February 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
Enjoy a intimate look at the California Delta from the raised deck of a boat as we slowly cruise and explore areas inaccessible by land. Bird life is abundant and diverse (you may see six or more species of hawks in the first hour, including a nesting pair of peregrine falcons). The boat has a tall upper deck from which we can peer over into the surrounding wetlands. You can also expect to see Swainson hawks, owls, and thousands of waterfowl including massive flocks of tundra swans, snow geese, Canada geese, ducks, and sandhill cranes. A professional bird leader will be onboard along with our sketchy friends. All ages, ability levels welcome. $20 suggested donation.
Space is limited to 25 persons, sign up today. Call Barbara at Dolphin Charters at (510) 527-9622 or (800) 472-9942 to reserve your spot.
Bring your journaling supplies, binoculars, bird books, spotting scopes (if you have ’em), and a bowl, spoon and a treat to share for the potluck lunch.
