6/1/2016: Photographing Yolo Bypass

I was in Davis, California for a benefit ride again and decided to return to the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to see what I could find.  This is one area that I would like to see during the peak of the bird migration season but my visits usually coincide with beginning of summer so I get what I get.  The area is not very aesthetic but it’s fun to see the bird life in a combination of auto tour and quick hikes.

    • Apparently fall and winter are the best times to see the waterfowl. I would really like to get back to Thule lake and the Klamath area to see the migrating birds with canoe and camera in hand.


    • Thanks. It doesn’t look very exciting from the freeway but there are some great gems in there. Maps are available at https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=99259&inline (since the ones on site have been vandalized). I noticed that there are docent led tours on the second Saturday every month. I have only been there twice but the road on the west side that hugs the creek has consistently provided a lot of opportunities for photographs, the birds are less skittish when cars go by, and it can be seen in a 1/2 hour. Now you have all my secrets, I can’t wait to see your blog.
