Craney Island Field Trip: Sat., August 27, 2011

Black-necked Stilts, American Avocets, a Red Phalarope and a Black-bellied Plover are among the many birds that have been seen at Craney this July. As always, this is a field trip you do not want to miss.

In you want to go, please meet at the Colony Square Shopping Center (on Jamestown Road) on Saturday, August 27th, at 7:00 am—carpooling is very important.

Be sure to be prepared for mosquitoes and the sun—wear a hat, long sleeves, long pants and use sun screen. Bring water and snacks. If you have a spotting scope, please bring it. The administration building at Craney Island will be closed, so we cannot use the restrooms there, but there will be a bathroom stop made before entering Craney Island and then again on the way out. To observe the birds in the cells, we’ll have to walk up to the impoundments and along the dike road so be prepared for some walking—but not long distances.

Ruth Beck will be the leader for this field trip.
