Category: General FIELD TRIP- FT. WALTON


7:30 a.m., Saturday, November 11—Ft. Walton Birding.
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 shore birding tips and sparrow insights as we get a good taste of winter birding.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the Live Oaks Village Shopping Center parking lot at 1143 Gulf Breeze Pkwy across Hwy 98 from Gulf Breeze Hospital, and return by mid-afternoon.

Plan to have lunch at a restaurant. Expect easy, moderate walking.

Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are always appreciated.

All birding experience levels are welcome.

Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope, as well as sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks on all trips.

Please do not wear scented cologne, perfumes, or aftershave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in na­ture, and some participants are highly sensitive to it.
