Yolo is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway, a corridor for millions of migrating birds. It is also home to wintering habitat for impressive numbers of waterfowl, and to the iconic yellow-billed magpie. This passageway inspired about forty photos ranging from Anna's Humming Bird to the Bald Eagle.p>

The Audubon Society's mission is to foster an appreciation of birds and other wildlife through educational programs and field trips. They also bring conservation issues to public awareness, and act to preserve Yolo County bird life and habitat. They hope people will stop by the show and learn about the beauty and diversity of Yolo County birds.
