FIELD TRIP- Dauphin Island
October 17 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm
NOTE MEETING TIME. Leaders Lucy and Bob Duncan. One of the famous migrant traps along the northern Gulf Coast, Dauphin Island can be stunning with migrants. Expect to encounter shorebirds and warblers as well as other migrants on the island from shorelines to coastal woodland.
Meet for carpooling by 7:00 a.m. in the Walmart parking lot at 9301 Pine Forest Rd, south of the corner of Nine Mile and Pine Forest Roads, or at about 8:00 a.m. behind the Shell Station at 29279 US Highway 98 Daphne, AL. (Exit south after you see Bass Pro Shops.) No cars can be left at the Shell Station!
The first stop on the island – Cadillac Park. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks. On Dauphin Island, we will picnic at Cadillac Park under ancient oaks hopefully dripping with birds.
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.
Questions? Call Lucy Duncan at 932-4792 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
