NOTE: DATE IS APPROXIMATE - ACTUAL DATE TBA
Mid-February: WASHINGTON COUNTY GRASSLANDS WMA (Washington County; afternoon)
Coordinator: Tristan Lowery firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is interest, we will repeat January’s trip in February.
With almost 500 acres of protected fields and meadows, the Washington County Grasslands WMA is a winter treasure. We will meet in the early afternoon and search for Snow Buntings, Horned Larks, Rough-legged Hawks and other diurnal species. Snowy Owl is always a possibility in an irruption year. As the afternoon wears on, we can hope to see the changeover from day to night shift, as Short-eared Owls displace Northern Harriers from their hunting grounds.
The exact date of this trip will depend upon weather conditions, snow depth, etc.
Because we will be birding from the road, it will be necessary to share vehicles and to limit the number of participants to 16. A maximum of five vehicles would be best. Contact the coordinator for reservations, and other information.
Meet at 2:00 p.m. at the parking lot on Blackhouse Road.
