FIELD TRIP- Ft. Walton

January 11, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

The impoundments at Ft. Walton typically hold shorebirds and ducks, and the field edges are replete with wintering songbirds.

Lucy and Bob Duncan will share shorebirding tips and sparrow insights as we get a good taste of winter birding. Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the Office Depot parking lot across Hwy 98 from Gulf Breeze Hospital, and return by mid-afternoon.

Plan on lunch at a restaurant. Expect easy, moderate walking.

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 town_point@bellsouth.net.

New Requirement—All participants in published events and excursions must sign a Release and Indemnification Form which is valid through 2019.  Leaders will have forms for those who have not yet signed one.  The form is online: fmwaudubon.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Release_Indemnification.pdf
