Leader: Lou Tucker. This will be a chance to see the tail end of fall migration for song birds, and also in the middle of fall migration for raptors. Some of these birds may also use the ranch as their winter home. Hopefully we will start our trip at the altitude of approximately 3 thousand feet. And, weather providing, we will climb to an altitude of around 6 thousand feet or more, with the goal of reaching Martinez Ridge, which overlooks the southern portion of the Central Valley. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver, necessary for the ranch's liability. The weather is unpredictable, so there is a possibility of it being in the neighborhood of 30 to 40 degrees as a low and 70-85 degrees as a high. We will tour in the ranch's vehicles as this is definitely extreme off road territory. Bring lunch, proper outdoor wear, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and water. Also, be advised to wear long pants/slacks because if it remains warm, snakes may not have gone into hibernation.
