(29) Crane Fly-In #2 Staten Island – November 6

More fly-in opportunities! This tour combines a crane fly-in with birding on Staten Island, a premier Nature Conservancy/Conservation Farms and Ranches location, to learn what the birds already know – this is one of the best places in the Delta to spend the winter. The fly-in here typically numbers into the thousands, with both Greater and Lesser Sandhill Cranes. In addition, ducks, geese, Tundra Swans, Great Blue Herons, egrets and numerous other bird species may be viewed. Experienced docents will highlight the history of Staten Island and its partnership with the Cosumnes River Preserve. The Friday night tour will be late getting back for the dinner, but we will hold you a plate.
