FIELD TRIP -Ft Pickens

September 8 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Lucy and Bob Duncan will lead the group looking for Neotropical migrants and early winter birds at Ft. Pickens.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the last parking lot before entering Ft. Pickens.  This is on the north side of the road just past the pink condos.  If you have a visitors pass be sure to bring it.

We will finish around lunchtime. You may wish to bring snacks and water or lunch.  Depending on the prevailing weather, we may have early Neotropical migrants like warblers, or shorebirds along the beaches.

One thing is guaranteed, it will be beautiful regardless of the weather, and we’ll have time to study some of our feathered friends! See you there!

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.

Questions? Call Lucy Duncan at 932‑4792 or email her at town_point@bellsouth.net.
