Saturday, September 16th   7:30 AM   Gallagher Fen

We shall meet at the parking lot at the corner of Croft Road and Robert Eastman Road at 7:30. Then we shall probably check the beach at Buck Creek State Park to look at the gulls and check for shorebirds. Then we shall drive to Gallagher Fen to look for warblers, vireos, thrushes, and other birds. This is a very nice area. Besides the birds, some wildflowers will be in bloom and we will get to see the fen. The weather looks good. Please call Doug Overacker at 324-1871 for more information.

Saturday, October 14th  7:30 AM  Buck Creek State Park

We shall meet at the usual place at the corner of Croft Road and Robert Eastman Road. This can be a great time to be out with the trees changing colors and cool weather. We shall check the beach for gulls and shorebirds. Then we shall walk some of the trails in the park looking for migrants. There should still be some warblers migrating. It is a good time to see migrating sparrows. Call Doug Overacker at 324-1871 for more information.

Recent Bird Sightings

The birds are migrating now. Some of our summer residents are leaving but other more northerly nesting birds are moving through the area. We have been checking the beach at Buck Creek State Park often and have seen several species of shorebirds. The highlights include a Marbled Godwit that showed for one day and a Sanderling that spent a couple days on the beach. We also have seen Common, Forster's, and Caspian Terns on the beach in the last couple weeks. On Sunday, September 3rd we saw 10 species of warblers at Gallagher Fen. Get out and enjoy the migration.
