The ponds and waterways of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area are full of water and birds. Male ducks are sporting their bold breeding plumage. Large rafts, or covers, of American Coots can be spotted just about everywhere foraging for algae and other plant matter. White-tailed Kites, American Kestrels, and many other raptors can be spotted perched strategically on posts, wires, and willows throughout the Area.
The roads have been battered by the stream of storms that have been passing through. The main road from the entrance to the Hunt Check Station is riddled with potholes. Please drive with care and courtesy.
Hunt Season is nearly over and according to Area Manager, Jeff Stoddard, “Access to parking lots E, F, G, and H will be reopened to the general public on Monday, February 22.”
