Las Gallinas Ponds, San Rafael : Least Bittern OdysseySaturday June 16, 7:30am - 11:00amFor the last few years Least Bitterns have bred at Las Gallinas Ponds. If the birds return in 2018 this trip coincides with when the birds should be starting their breeding activity. We have a good chance of hearing, and maybe seeing, the smallest North American heron. This is also an excellent area to view a wide variety of waterfowl and other wetland birds, and maybe even have a chance to see one of the resident River Otters. These are level trails along a series of levees. This is a slow-paced trip, excellent for all levels of birding. A scope is useful here, if you have one, but many of the birds are close enough for great photo opportunities. Directions: From Highway 101 in San Rafael  take the Smith Ranch Road exit, then go east on Smith Ranch toward the McInnis Park entrance. Turn left immediately after crossing the railroad tracks, staying on Smith Ranch, and go about .5 miles to the end of the road, at the Las Gallinas Ponds parking lot. Meet in the parking lot. Heavy rain cancels. Leader: Adam Dudley Contact: <Adam.Dudley...>
