SATURDAY, July 29Vic Fazio Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area
     Are you up for a challenge?  Can you identify the “peeps” (small shorebirds)?  Want some practice?  A chance at a rarity?  Yolo Bypass offers a large protected wetland area that reliably attracts shorebirds during their epic migrations, and yes, that includes the end of July.  We’ll enjoy the other species present as well, but shorebirds will be the focus.  Do bring a spotting scope if you have one.  Birders at all skill levels are welcome.  Meet leader Susan Schneider at 7:00 a.m. at the Flag City McDonald’s parking lot (Highway 12 and I-5).  We should arrive at the Wildlife Area around 8:00 a.m. at the entrance parking lot, if anyone wants to meet us there.  Bring a lunch or snack.
