Come celebrate their beauty and diversity at these Delta Birding Events:
 
The 20th Annual Sandhill Crane Festival – Lodi
Each year thousands of visitors make their way to Lodi to experience one of nature’s greatest spectacles. For 20 years, Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Festival has celebrated the return of the cranes.
The Festival continues this November, welcoming an ever-growing circle of friends to share the wonder of the Sandhill Crane … and so much more.
Friday thru Sunday, November 4 – 6, 2016

Central Valley Birding Symposium – Stockton
Join others from all over the country and meet great birders and naturalists such as Ed Harper, Keith Hansen, Dan Airola and Ed Pandolfino in a variety of presentations and workshops. Enjoy the ever popular “stump the experts” bird ID panel which is always fun and a great way to learn difficult identifications. Field trips visit surrounding hot spots to celebrate the diversity of birds wintering in the Central Valley, and several will be held within the Delta.
Thursday thru Sunday, November 17-20, 2016
 
Waterbirds of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
Join Point Blue ecologists in the wetlands of the San Francisco Bay Delta at Staten Island and the Cosumnes River Preserve to learn about our long-term involvement in monitoring and guiding habitat management for wintering waterbirds. The Delta is vitally important for California’s water supply, agricultural activities and wildlife. A large proportion of the state’s Pacific Flyway migratory water birds rely on the region’s agricultural fields and wetlands and astonishing numbers of waterbirds can be viewed in the winter months.
