Description

DUCKS (AND MORE) IN SCOPES

A great trip for families, youth groups and beginning birders.

Don’t forget to stop by the Cosumnes River Preserve and check out “Ducks In Scopes”, where preserve docents have a row of scopes set up, some set lower to accommodate children. They’ll focus on giving you good views of the many colorful ducks and geese, as well as some of the more interesting shorebirds such as Black-necked Stilts and Common Snipe. A table display features “Duck Soup”, dishes of water dipped from the pond full of sand fleas, dragonfly nymphs, and other squiggly things that provide the protein the birds are feeding on. A microscope and hand lens provide close-up looks. The Preserve is a quick drive from Sacramento – south on I-5 to Twin Cities Road; left (east) on Twin Cities for 1 mile; then right (south) on Franklin Blvd. The viewing area is in the first parking lot on your right as you drive into the preserve. Come any time between 10am and 2pm, on the following dates.

Fall 2016 Schedule: 10/22, 10/29, 11/5, 11/6, 11/12, 11/19, 11/26, 12/4, 12/11, 12/18 and 1/1.
