Sparrow Field Trip!

Lincoln's Sparrow

Saturday, October 9th @ 7:15AM

I've been doing battle with the stomach flu for the past few days, but I think I'll be well enough to lead this field trip on Saturday. Sylvia Marek said she would lead it if I'm unable. The focus of this outing will be sparrows, including White-crowned, White-throated, Fox, Lincoln's, Clay-colored, Song, Swamp, Field, and others. We'll also see if we can find any late warblers, flycatchers, thrushes, and other fall migrants. Meet at the Dane County Unit of Pheasant Branch Conservancy, about 1.5 miles north of Century Avenue in Middleton on Pheasant Branch Road. This is the third parking lot for the conservancy on the right as you drive north out of Middleton. See "Parking for Prairie Parcel" on this map.
