Corridor Conversations: Birds Along the Capitol Corridor

Corridor Conversations: Birds Along the Capitol Corridor Route

November 13, 2020

Join us for Birds Along the Capitol Corridor on Saturday, December 5!

The Capitol Corridor route between Sacramento and Martinez passes through two important bird habitats, the Yolo Bypass and the Suisun Marsh, both of which provide nesting areas for many species of birds and other animals, plus winter homes and rest stops for thousands of birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway.

The winter months that we are heading into provide the best viewing opportunities for large numbers of birds. Since many of our riders are not on the train at this time due to the continuing pandemic, we are partnering with the Yolo Basin Foundation to bring some of this rich habitat to you virtually through our Corridor Conversations webinar, “Birds Along the Capitol Corridor Route.”

Featuring Ken Ealy of the Yolo Basin Foundation, this webinar will introduce you to the names and habits of a few of the birds that can be identified from the train, like the pelicans, ducks, and geese flying overhead in V-formation and the snow-white egrets hunting in the shallow waters of the marsh.
