Free, no reservations required, but you MUST carpool and MUST stay for the duration of the trip until late afternoon. Please, no exceptions.
Time: 6 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The year is fast approaching the height of the migratory period. This date in May provides participants with the opportunity to find returning breeders, late wintering birds as well as many shorebirds and ducks on their way north to breed. Who knows what rarities will be spied as you visit many productive habitats given the exceptional skills of Bill?
Please meet promptly at 6 a.m. at the Meadows Shopping Center in front of the Rite-Aid Pharmacy, by Mohawk and Baseline. Bring sun protection, food for snacks and/or lunch, water and other beverages.. Dress in layers as you will experience lots of temperature changes. Wear sturdy footwear and be ready for some hiking. Please have a full tank of gas if you will volunteer to drive. Passengers should plan on paying the drivers $.12 per mile to cover their expenses. Again, this is an all day trip and you will have to car pool, but expect 100+ species for your day of hard birding!
