DANCES WITH CRANES

 

One of the most spectacular birds in

the world spends its winters right here

in Tulare County.  At Pixley National

Wildlife Refuge in the south county, between 4,000 and 6,000 Sandhill Cranes arrive in the Fall to feed in agricultural fields by day and to shelter at night in the ponds at Pixley NWR. 

                                                             

 

BIRDING LOCATION RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Return of Tulare Lake

 

Due to the return of Tulare Lake, we have great opportunities for wintering birds this year.  Many extra miles of shoreline of Tulare Lake have attracted shorebirds we rarely see here in drought years.  Shorebirds require very shallow water to feed. Pond edges are limited in our counties despite our location on the Pacific Flyway.  A variety of heron-type birds roost on the trees in flooded nut orchards.  Raptors cruise for shorebirds. Unusual gulls appear at times. For locations to view the lakeshore, check eBird.org.  Go to Explore and type in either Tulare or Kings for recent locations.
