Spenceville Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This site is a mix of two kinds of habitat: rolling foothill country and flat agricultural rice fields. The two flow smoothly together into a bit of unspoiled rural California. Specialty birds: Resident—White-faced Ibis, Black Rail, Western Screech-Owl, Nuttall’s Woodpecker, Hutton’s Vireo, Yellow-billed Magpie, Oak Titmouse, Western Bluebird, Rufous-crowned Sparrow, Lesser Goldfinch. Summer—Black-chinned Hummingbird, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Western Kingbird, Violet-green Swallow, Black-headed Grosbeak, Lazuli Bunting, Bullock’s Oriole, Lawrence’s Goldfinch. Winter—Bald Eagle, Lewis’s Woodpecker, Red-breasted Sapsucker, Says’ Phoebe. Migrant—Rufous Hummingbird, Hammond’s Flycatcher. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information."

"Shingle Falls (also known as Fairy Falls) is an unexpected oasis, a swimming hole popular with locals but little known among the broader hiking fraternity. The surrounding Spenceville Wildlife Area is a foothill sanctuary, preserving acres of classic California pastoral landscapes, green in winter and gold in summer."
