Come aboard for a wonderful day exploring the rich habitats of the California Delta system. Our trip will begin in Antioch and we’ll cruise the meandering tidal channels in comfort aboard the Delphinus or River Dolphin with their high viewing platforms. We’ll search for shorebirds, raptors and thousands of waterfowl, such as Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, White-fronted Geese, numerous ducks and even stately Sandhill Cranes that spend the winter in the Delta. In previous years, participants have sighted six or more species of raptors in the first hour, including harriers, kites and Peregrine Falcons. Enjoy a specialized look at the rich natural and human history of the California Delta at a time of year when bird life is abundant.
