I've accumulated enough photos from my trips to the Consumnes River Preserve that I thought I'd do a gallery.

Due to our location on numerous waterways, we are very fortunate in Sacramento to have some wonderful wildlife refuge areas near us, both north and south of downtown.  One of my favorite is the Consumnes River Preserve.  It consists of approximately 45,859 acres of wildlife habitat and agricultural lands owned by seven land-owning Partners. Its floodplains and riparian habitat are buffered by a variety of agricultural operations, and for photographers, it is a great place to shoot images of many kinds of wildlife, including birds that migrate throughout the Pacific Flyway.
