Sparrow Field Trip!

My last Madison Audubon field trip of the year is scheduled for October 6th, 7:15 a.m. at the Dane County Unit of Pheasant Branch Conservancy north of Middleton. The main focus of this field trip will be identifying sparrows: White-throated, White-crowned, Clay-colored, Fox, Lincoln's, Field, Song, Swamp and many others. It's not uncommon to find a dozen or more sparrow species the first week of October at the conservancy. We'll also look for late warblers, flycatchers, thrushes and other fall migrants. The field trip is free and open to the general public.
