“See the Birds”

Adubon Canyon Ranch
Reviewed December 28, 2012

A nesting colony of great egrets. The birds nest in the redwood trees in the canyon and feed from the lagoon. The hike to the observation platform is moderate and there are scopes set up for watching the action in the nests.

I went to the Adubon Canyon Ranch in mid-May, It was a challenge to find, but well worth the drive. The drive is beautiful, scenic, passing through the bay waters, viewing the birds along the way. This event is free but I donated to this great cause of protection of habitat and upkeep of the reserve. The parking is adequate but it is unpaved and very dusty. The volunteer docents are very helpful. You do need to hike up a trail, it is steep but they have handrails and it is well marked. When I went the cranes were laying on their eggs. The eggs were large and bluish in color. There was a fledging we saw which was quite small. I'm going back this weekend to see the life cycle. I was informed that the eggs should all be hatched and the demanding chicks should make quite a show.
