Field Trip Leader: Teresa Shaner
Meet at Jimmy John’s parking lot, Pantops Shopping Center, for carpooling.
Within the county to our east, but only 30 minutes from Charlottesville, is the Green Springs Historic District in Louisa County, north of Zion Crossroads. During this afternoon trip, we will travel the roads of Green Springs in search of Northern Harriers and other raptors, sparrows, including Savannah and White-crowned Sparrows, and woodpeckers, including Red-headed Woodpecker. We will also look for waterfowl, which include Canada Geese flocks with any rarer geese traveling with them, on our way to a location at dusk where Short-eared Owls have often been found in the past.
