"Follow elevated maintenance roads on a long loop through the 16,700-acre Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area on Sacramento’s west side, sharing the wetlands, grasslands and rice fields with countless birds. For decades the levee-bound rice fields and remnants of wetlands on the south side of the interstate on Sacramento’s western border were little more than a curiosity for motorists speeding by. Now they are a destination for hikers, birders, and hunters. The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area’s seasonal and permanent wetlands, grasslands, and riparian zones are also a destination for birdlife of all descriptions, from the commonly seen mallard duck and red-winged blackbird to the more exotic peregrine falcon, great blue heron and Swainson’s hawk. It is a major waypoint on the Pacific Flyway, so no matter the season, venturing into the wildlife area will involve bird watching, birdcall, and bird wonder." Read more
