Indigeny Reserve

Categories No Categories

The Central Sierra Audubon Society (CSAS) is planning a bird walk through the grounds of Indigeny Reserve, east of Sonora on Sunday, Feb. 26. Besides the apple orchards, there are large oaks, some pines, stream-side thickets and a marshy area with reeds that provide great habitat for birds. In January by Phoenix Lake a pair of Killdeer, two flying Great Blue Herons and a number of ducks were seen. Another highlight was a flock of Ruby-crowned Kinglets that flashed their ruby crowns—a special treat not often seen. The walk will last 2-3 hours. Children are welcome accompanied by an adult. Meet in the parking lot at 8 a.m. Rain will cancel the trip. Follow the signs from the intersection of Greenley and Lyons/Bald Mountain Roads, turn right onto Apple Hill Drive where there is a large sign that says “Apple Valley Ranches.” A quick left turn onto Summers Lane leads to Indigeny. Bring your binoculars and/or scopes, a hat, sunscreen, water and wear muted colors. Trip leader is Kit DeGear (925)-822-5215 or
