On Saturday, Feb. 2, Kevin Gusé of Yolo Audubon Society will lead his popular “Raptor Ramble” field trip, an effort to locate as many raptor species as possible. The search will focus on Yolo County, but may visit adjacent counties as opportunities present. In addition to common hawks and kestrels, participants will be looking for such species as Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Merlins, Prairie Falcons, Ferruginous Hawks, and Rough-legged Hawks. The all-day trip will meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Park-N-Ride lot north of the Mace Boulevard exit in South Davis and will return around sundown. Bring binoculars, lunch, and water. Spotting scopes, if available, would be of assistance. This is primarily a driving trip, but will involve extended periods outside of the vehicles, so participants should dress accordingly. Trip details, including leader contact information, as well as a schedule for upcoming events, can always be found on the Yolo Audubon website at www.yoloaudubon.org. Significant rain will cancel the event. ]]>
