FIELD TRIP -Dauphin Island
October 3 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join the Duncans at this hotspot for Gulf Coast birding! The island typically hosts hundreds of Neotropical migrants on a good fall day in October.
We’ll be visiting at the height of fall migration, so the hopeful prospect of finding warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers, and others is enticing.
Meet in the Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot 9301 Pine Forest Rd (south of the corner of Pine Forest and Nine Mile Road) at 7:00 a.m.
This is a new meeting location! Or, meet us around 8:00 behind the Shell Station overlooking D’Olive Bay on US 98 in Daphne, just south of Interstate 10.
Next, we will drive to Dauphin Island and meet up at Cadillac Square on the island. Plan to bring or buy lunch on the island to enjoy under ancient oaks hopefully dripping with migrants!
Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated. All experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips.
Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or aftershave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it. Carpooling is encouraged, as is sharing gas expenses with the driver.
