Cosumnes & Isenberg Crane Reserves (Central Valley, California)

On a chilly and rainy Friday, Sarah & I headed east to the Central Valley to see what was a’wing at Cosumnes River Reserve and the Isenberg Crane Reserve, two locations I’ve heard much about, but had not previously birded. The year’s end approaching, I wanted to add a few Central Valley specialties to my 2007 list. Eagles of both the Bald and Golden variety, Cranes, Swans, and several Geese occur in this area that rarely, if ever, are found in the immediate SF Bay Area.
