String of Pearls—Oakdale: This trip will begin at the Oakdale Recreation Area on the Stanislaus River and work its way up the River to Knights Ferry with stops along the way. Birds seen on a similar trip in 2022 included Wood Ducks, Phainopeplas, Snowy Egrets, Wilson’s Snipes, Great Egrets and Nuttall’s Woodpeckers. Meet at 8:30 a.m. at Barrow’s (formerly Perko’s) on Mono Way in Sonora to carpool. This will be a 100-mile round trip from Sonora so have enough gas! Bring layered clothing in muted colors, binoculars and scopes and lunch. If you wish to meet in Oakdale, the recreation area is just off River Road. Turn right at the traffic light in Oakdale and left on River Road. The 2nd left is Liberinhi Avenue which takes you to the parking lot where we will assemble at 9:30 a.m. Trip leader is Paolo Maffei (209)532-8426.
