Woodbridge Sandhill Crane Preserve, Lodi, CA






Chris and I just got back from a quick drive up to Lodi & Sacramento. We had some time yesterday (rain & all) to drive out to a Sandhill Crane wildlife preserve near Lodi, CA. Kind of a crummy day weather wise for humans but the birds didn't seem to mind. We were the only people out there for a couple hours, which was pretty cool! We drove the full length of Woodbridge Road probably 3-4 miles. Most of these shots are from the inside of a dry car, many times stopping in the middle of the road whenever a bird availed itself. There were Sandhill Cranes, Tundra Swans, Snowy White Egrets and Canadian Geese. Here are a few pictures of some of the birds and of the area to give you the feel of the fog and general dreariness of the day.
