Experiencing the Delta from the water is a wonderful added dimension to learning about this area. Great weather & awesome sunsets added to the spectacular adventure.

An excellent program for birders not interested or unable to participate in a high energy program. A large variety of birds were seen, and interesting side trips.

Dear Jim We had the pleasure of the bird watching trip on the River Dolphin 11/6-7/14. You caught it on film. Thank you for your outstanding photography and artistic presentation to allow us to make our tour together again and again. We counted 22 turtles on our first day. We saw the juvenile night herons that think they are Bitterns. We saw a couple bitterns at the Cosumnes River Preserve on our last day. The Sand Hill cranes were the stars of the show. Thanks again for sharing.

I have lived in California all my life, but this is a part of the state that was hidden from me. It's like stepping back in time to 1950. Such a different perspective from the water! Beautiful! The sand hill crane experience was inspiring.
