Are you ready for some hawks?

Over-wintering Birds of Prey Overload Hike Sunday, DEC 8, 2013
10:00 AM
SOLANO LAND TRUST — Lynch Canyon Open Space Park
Join Larry Broderick and the Solano Land Trust Raptor Team for the 2013 fall raptor migration. The tour will be focused on resident, migrating and over-wintering birds of prey. Previous sightings include Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles, Rough-legged Hawks, Cooper's Hawks, Sharp-shinned Hawks, Ferruginous Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Prairie Falcons and other more common birds of prey.

Broderick has over 25 years of experience with birds of prey.

All ages are welcome, but participants must be prepared for a moderate pace covering about 4 miles, possibly off-trail in places, up and down rugged, steep, and slippery hills that are full of sticky seeds, thorny plants and thistle, and passing free range cattle along the way.

An RSVP is requested to Mary Beth at mbcrittendon@comcast.net or 707-685-5908. Meet at the Lynch Canyon parking lot by 10am sharp. Bring $5 cash for parking, a backpack with plenty of water and snacks; boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes with tread for rough, steep and slippery terrain; long, sturdy pants, layered clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, and protection from sun, wind, fog and rain. Binoculars, a camera, bug repellent and hiking sticks are also recommended. A donation is suggested to help sustain these tours. Constant or heavy rain cancels the hike. Call (707) 685-5908 if the weather is uncertain.

Parking Fee: $5
