Thanks to the more than 20 people who came out to today's Warbler Workshop at Cool Creek Park! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I (Jessica Helmbold, your education chair) did. Did anyone see warblers on the walk after the program? Our next workshop is in the works. Let us know what topics you are interested in and we'll take them into consideration. Hope to see you at the next program.
The Smith's Longspur field trip on Sunday provided more than our target bird! After a tip from Clint Murray and Shari Schultz McCollough, the group stopped by a flooded farm field to check on some shorebirds that were reported. There we had great views of a close group of Pectoral Sandpipers, and both Yellowlegs species! Thanks to all of the participants who joined us. It was a very windy but extremely fun day!
Stay tuned for more Amos Butler Audubon Society field trip announcements coming soon!
