FIELD TRIP- BACKYARD BIRDING

September 11 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Backyard birding along Pensacola Bay’s north shore at Ann Forster’s yard and trails.

We expect to find gulls, terns and shorebirds along the waterfront, and possibly early migrants mixed in with resident birds in the yard.

The trip will be led by Lucy and Bob Duncan, and will finish before lunch. Meet at the Greer’s CashSaver Grocery at 4051 Barrancas Ave. just east of Navy Blvd. at 7:30 a.m. You may wish to bring water or snacks for the morning.

Reservations are required. To sign up for a trip, email Lucy Duncan at town_point@bellsouth.net to secure your space. Provide your full name and phone number. This information will be used to contact you in case of inclement weather or issues preventing a safe field trip.

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.

Questions? Call Lucy Duncan, 850-932-4792.
