Early Fall Migrant Shorebirds & Waders
|Addresse||P. O Box 4172|
To avoid the heat, our August field trip is in the evening. The trip focus will be birds, specifically early fall migrants through the Oxbow. While the calendar says it is still late summer, the southbound fall migration of shorebirds (sandpipers & plovers), long-legged waders (herons & egrets) and several other species begins quite early and will be well underway. Join our son and father trip leaders Jack Stenger and Jay Stenger (skilled and expert birders who know the area inside and out) for a pleasant summer evening in the Oxbow area. We also expect to find numerous Great Egrets and herons including Great Blue, Green and Black-crowned Night-Herons. We may also find unusual or rare species such as Little Blue Heron and Snowy Egret. Purple Martins and other migrating swallows can “stage” in large numbers in the Oxbow during this month and terns, Osprey, Bald Eagle (year round) and other early migrants are possible.
