Field Trip this Weekend!

If you’re in the Madison area this Saturday (June 17th), I’ll be leading a field trip for the Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy at 7:30am. Meet at the Dane County Conservancy parking lot on Pheasant Branch Road, 1.2 miles from Century Avenue (Middleton).

A few days ago I pre-scouted the grasslands and savannah and found 33 bird species including half a dozen Dickcissels. There were also Brown Thrashers, Common Yellowthroats, Sedge Wrens, Eastern Kingbirds, Indigo Buntings and more. The weather forecast looks great for the weekend, but perhaps a little warm so make sure to bring water and good hiking shoes.

See you there!
