360° VR Panoramas of the Sacramento Valley
Colusa County, California

Colusa, with its impressive county courthouse, became an important place in the nineteenth century because of its location on both the Sacramento River and the railroad.

Large areas in the low-lying central portion of the Sacramento Valley have been preserved as habitat for migratory birds. The Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, one of five in the area, provides seasonal wetlands, open water, and grasslands to support birds migrating on the Pacific Flyway. Although over 200 species of birds are seen here, it is the spectacle of huge numbers of ducks, geese, and swans found here in winter that draws birders.
