Llano Seco at sunrise is one of the most beautiful ways to spend a morning. We took a walk down the picturesque nature trail and saw lots of Pintail ducks, a Kestrel, Phoebe and heard the magical song of the Western Meadowlark.
The Llano Seco Unit is part of the North Central Valley Wildlife Management Area, and consists of over 1,700 acres, with wetlands, grasslands and some riparian habitats. Its close proximity to the city of Chico (about 10 miles to the southwest) makes accessibility a breeze.
Make sure you watch the video below to get a 360 degree taste of how scenic this spot is and how loud the birds and ducks are!
For more about the birds found in the area, visit my birding blog Wings and Daydreams. Here's the Fish & Wildlife website with more info, maps and directions on how to get to the refuge.
Let's go on an adventure!
