Field Trip - Early Fall Migrants

Some birders in southern Wisconsin have already reported a few southbound warbler species. NexRad radar has also been showing increased migration activity during the night for the past week and will reach its peak sometime after Labor Day. Are you in the Madison area? The first fall field trip I'll be leading is for the Madison Audubon Society on Saturday, August 27th at Pheasant Branch Conservancy. We can expect to see warblers, vireos, flycatchers and other early fall migrants. The trip will last approximately two hours, so bring comfortable shoes for walking/hiking. Meet at 7:00 a.m. in Middleton at the Branch Street Retreat bar parking lot at the corner of Century Avenue and Branch Street. I'll bring a few extra pair of binoculars for those who need them!

This field trip is free and open to the general public!
