Fall Field Trips!



Here's my fall field trip schedule!

08/23 @ 7:00am: Pheasant Branch Conservancy (fall warblers)
09/11 @ 7:00am: Pheasant Branch Conservancy (fall warblers)
09/16 @ 7:00am: Pheasant Branch Conservancy (fall warblers)
10/04 @ 7:15am: Pheasant Branch Conservancy (sparrows)
10/25 @ 7:30am: Pheasant Branch Conservancy (sparrows, late migrants)

The first three field trips take place at the Pheasant Branch creek corridor, so meet at the cul-de-sac near Parisi Park where Park Lawn meets Park Street. The two October field trips take place at the Dane County Unit along Pheasant Branch Road, so meet at the gravel parking for prairie access. Check this Google map of Pheasant Branch Conservancy for precise locations. Field trip emphasis will be identification of migratory songbirds by sight and sound.

It looks like Madison Audubon scheduled me for three hours on some of these, but typically I'm only available for two. We'll see how the birding is. If warblers are dripping from the trees, I'll try to stay a little longer. All field trips are free and open to the general public. See you there!
