If you're ever in the northern part of California and you like birding at all, a must stop is Merced National Wildlife Refuge. Just south of Sacramento, it's a rest stop for a ton of birds on their migratory flights. Not only that, but it's also a critical location during mating season. With plenty of walking trails, its a special place to go birding. Jaymi Heimbuch of Mother Nature Network visited and documented its beauty and all those great birds!
