7:00 am - 11:30 am
Field Trip Leader: David Shoch
Group will be limited to the first 15 sign-ups. Contact David Shoch at [email protected]. Leaders will be David and Pete Myers. Participants will meet at the Walmart parking lot (975 Hilton Heights Rd) at 7 am and then carpool to the site from there. Expect it to be wet so bring boots! The trip will run to approximately 11:30 am. Timing should be good for fall migrant sparrows like Lincoln’s and potentially rarer Ammodramus sparrows (this site has 3 records for the rare Nelson’s Sparrow).
This is at a private location and so we are grateful for the owner’s permission and dedication of the land for conservation. After birding, all participants are invited and *encouraged*, to spend a few hours assisting on brush management and trail maintenance. If you would like to sign on to this activity as well, please bring work gloves and hand clippers or long-handled loppers if you have them.
