(32) Crane Fly-In #2 WER South – November 6

We are doing something exciting again this year! Instead of taking busloads of people to the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve South, this tour has been changed to a limited carpool event. We have reserved parking space and the viewing mound for an exclusive rendezvous with the Sandhill Cranes. Avoid the crowds and listen as experienced volunteer docents from the Department of Fish and Wildlife share the natural history of the cranes. At dusk, in large groups that can number from several hundred to several thousand, the cranes converge on the flooded fields to roost for the night. Often this spectacle of flight, vocalization and ground activity is back-dropped by stunning sunsets behind Mt. Diablo. Book this tour early, as it will undoubtedly fill up fast! [The cranes determine end times for evening tours.]
