Photo Trek in Northern California

I began on Suisun Valley Road, Suisun Valley, California where I took a photo of a vineyard. Then I drove along Shiloh Road to take two photos of mustards with Mount Diablo in the background and some wind towers. Again I took another group of wind towers along Birds Landing Road. The next day I took three photos of snow geese and seagulls along Desmond Road in Cosumnes River Preserve. The last photo I took of swans and ducks along Woodbridge Road near the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve. It was a pleasant winter outing with signs of early spring.

Returning Cranes and more on The Delta, California

Here are two groups of photos that I took of returning Sandhill Cranes and other wildbirds on the Pacific Flyway in the Sacramento River Delta Region in California. All the photos were taken along Woodbridge Road and Staten Island Road in The Delta. There were some Sandhill Cranes, a blue heron, some snow geese, an egret, and a snowy egret that I found in nearby ecological preserves. For me, it’s always a joy to see the migratory birds return in the fall and winter months.

Snow Geese at Staten Island Preserve, California

Here are ten images that I took of snow geese at Staten Island Preserve, California. The snow geese are among the last migratory arrivals here in The Delta which is part of the Pacific Flyway. They will soon be leaving to return north for the summer season. For me they are fun and colorful to watch and to photograph.

Winter Moon Over The Delta, California

Here are 16 photos that I took of wildlife at the Staten Island Preserve in the Sacramento River Delta Region, California. I took some on December 27 when the winter moon was approaching fullness. The rest I took on December 29 when the winter moon was full. For me, I always mentally engaged when I’m photographing wild birds in the Preserve. It’s fun for me. Happy New Year 2021!

I always enjoy visiting The Delta. It intrigues me with sights and sounds of wildlife on the Pacific Flyway.

Sunset on Woodbridge Road, Lodi, California

Here are five photos that I took on Woodbridge Road near the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve, Lodi, California. We’re near the end of the migratory birds stay in this Pacific Flyway. Most of them start leaving in January. So here’s a sunset towards the end of their stay for the 2019 season. They will return fall of 2020.

Happy New Year 2020!
