- I know this isn't in Kern Co.,but it is a short drive from
Bakersfield,I hope Michael does'nt mind. Sunday morning Carla and I
drove to Pixley National Wildlife Rufuge(Tulare Co.) in the rain,but
had a good time anyway.
There were hundreds of Sandhill Cranes at the Rufuge and the
surrounding fields.lots of fun viewing and picture taking. also was a
good Rapor day: Ferruginous Hawk
Great Horned Owl
There were also several species of Waterfowl at the viewing stand
If you never been to the Pixley Rufuge you can visit a good web-site
at http://natureali.com/pixley.htm for directions and information.
- At 4:15 I found the Sandhill Cranes that the Kyles found earlier
today.Same directions and location as previous posted. They were easy
to find as soon as I got out of the car,however at 4:22p.m. they flew
off headed south.Probably just to a near by field.
