Yolo Causeway Bicycle Path Professional Reviews and Guides

"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."

"Many rural areas in Northern California offer good birding on farmlands, and Yolo County is no exception. One thing to note in this particular region is that many of the crops are low growing and offer attractive foraging opportunities for Swainson’s Hawk, a state-listed threatened species. Specialty birds: Resident—White-tailed Kite, Burrowing Owl, Yellowbilled Magpie, Tricolored Blackbird, Western Meadowlark. Summer—Swainson’s Hawk. Winter—Ferruginous Hawk; Prairie and Peregrine Falcons; Mountain Plover; California Gull; Short-eared Owl. 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."
