24 Sacramento Audubon volunteers led field trips for adults and families, and monitored spotting scopes focused on birds' nests for two March Bird & Breakfast events at Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Adults enjoyed a breakfast provided by ARNHA members, and families had a Kiwanis pancake breakfast. Participants enjoyed scope looks at Anna's Hummingbirds fledging, the plump young ones flapping their wings as they rose up and down in the nest. Another nest had views of the adult feeding the short-billed young. Bushtit pairs coming and going from their sock type nests were also in scopes. Some groups watched a coyote chasing deer, some saw a sea lion in the river, and some watched Red-tailed Hawks carrying nesting materials to a nest high on the bluffs. And everyone had up close views of dramatically displaying Wild Turkeys.
In April Craig DeMartini gave a short presentation about Sacramento Audubon and led a birding field trip at the Harrington Access on the American River for the monthly meeting of the group Roots of Connection.
Also in April Maureen Geiger and Jane VonKessel led a Family Friendly birding field trip at Laguna Creek in Elk Grove for the Laguna Creek Watershed Council.
