From Interstate 5 in northern California, there are a few Wildlife areas, which are very pristine. These historic natural wetlands formed from runoff from the Sacramento river and Butte Creek.  Located in Butte and Glenn counties, the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area is a sight to see.

I was passing by the Llano Seco around sunset.  I went to see Storm Large at the Laxson Auditorium, at Chico State. She rocks!  Look up her website. She sings with Pink Martini also. They have a song, called Veronique. Storm Large

It’s a great place for bird watching, there are many species of birds. There are so many birds to see, here are just a few.  There are pelicans, hawks, eagles, falcons, cuckoo, sparrows, cranes, herons, starlings, swallows, larks, blackbirds, and so many more I won’t list.  Go to the website, and look at the pdf file, Bird Checklist.  There are so many they need a check list.
