Beginner Trip: Nations Road – Registration Opening Soon

December 6 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Short-eared Owl - Bloomfield - © Zaphir Shamma - Jan 13, 2016

Sharpen your skills on wintering hawks and Short-eared Owls.  Other wintering birds such as Horned Larks, Snow Buntings, and Lapland Longspurs are often present.

Meet at 2:00 p.m. at the Tops Plaza in Avon on Routes 5 and 20, 2 miles west of I-390.  Carpooling strongly advised.

Dress warmly. 

Extra spotting scopes and FRS radios would be very helpful.

Note: This is a field trip for beginners. New birders should feel free to join these trips regardless of experience level: bring binoculars if you have them, and we will share our scopes. The pace & focus of Beginner Trips may not be satisfying for experienced birders. Our Beginner Trips focus on teaching identification skills, learning new habitats, and answering questions. Experienced birders are welcome but may be pressed into service as educators!
