"Team Otter" joined the fun at Sutter's Landing Park more recently than that. We'll be out again on December 3rd, bright and early and divide up in small groups and note all birds and other wildlife seen over the next few hours. We will be recording counts of all birds and reporting our counts via eBird. This information is collected and shared with the other teams and American River Natural History Association (ARNHA) staff will compile all the data so it is available to share with scientists, students, and agency staff to better understand the natural world around us. You don't have to be an expert to participate and it's easy to help with the count. Afterwards, a report of what was seen at Sutter's Landing Park will be posted here too.
Western Meadowlarks are often seen at Sutter's Landing Park. Did you know it's the state bird for six states? Photo from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_meadowlark
