On the Shores of California’s Largest Lake

Blue HeronSpring is bursting out, and though many of the winter migrants are heading for home, there is still significant activity in California’s Central Valley.

Clear Lake State Park is on the shore of California's largest natural lake at the foot of 4,200-foot Mount Konocti. With oaks and pines on high ground and willows and other riparian vegetation along watercourses, the area draws heavy concentrations of birds.

The Heron Festival & Wildflower Brunch on April 30 and May 1 provides one of the best opportunities to see nesting Great Blue Herons and Double Breasted Cormorants. Ninety-minute Pontoon Boat tours provide safe viewing of these large birds and their young in tree-top rookeries. Along the way you may spot Clarks and Western grebes, American White Pelicans and the occasional Osprey, along with many other species.
