We went to the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge during the off season. According to the radio guided tour, most of the migrating birds leave by January to head north for the summer. Even though it was the off season, this wetland sanctuary is beautiful.
The guided tour (FM 93.1) that accompanies the slow car drive through the refuge explains why the wetland restoration is necessary for the health of our communities and the wildlife. The tour was very interesting.
We saw many jackrabbits including babies, lots of ducks, hawks and a couple of beautiful pheasants. We also saw non-migrating ducks and what looked like a snowy egret.
If you are in the area, I highly recommend stopping at this beautiful and peaceful site.
Our National Parks pass covered our admission.
