San Jacinto Wildlife Area is approximately 19,000 acres, with 9,000 acres of restored wetlands. It is the first state wildlife area to utilize reclaimed water to enhance its wetlands. It also is a birding hotspot with approximately 292 species recorded. Waterfowl, wading birds, raptors and quail are a few of the many birds found here. We hope to see Virginia Rail, White-faced Ibis, Rock Wren, Marsh Wren, and Golden Eagle. Other possibilities include Greater Roadrunner, Merlin, Vermilion Flycatcher, Mountain Bluebird and Canvasback. We will carpool, following the auto tour route, making stops along the way. Bring water and sunscreen, and a lunch for the time that we go over our bird list. Restrooms and porta-pottys on site.
