FIELD TRIP- FT. PICKENS

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

Ft. Pickens, our backyard National Seashore, birding for migrants. Birding at Ft. Pickens can yield a wonderful array of both resident and migrant species under the right conditions! You can anticipate easy walking and good opportunities to find a variety of species this time of year with leaders Lucy and Bob Duncan.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the last parking lot before you enter Ft. Pickens (the Park West parking lot on the north side of the road, just past the pink condos at 1390 Ft. Pickens Road).

If you have a National Parks visitors’ pass, be sure to bring it. We will finish by noon. You may wish to bring water or snacks for the morning. Reservations are required, see note below.

Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are always appreciated. All birding experience levels are welcome.

Field trips require reservations. To sign up for a trip, email Lucy Duncan at town_point@bellsouth.net to secure your space.

You must provide your full name and phone number to be added to the list. This information will be used to contact you in case of inclement weather or issues preventing a safe field trip. 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. Questions? Call Lucy Duncan, 850-932-4792.
