Field Trip to Black Swan Preserve
Friday, May 13, 2022
Leaders: Diane and Steve Rose : 7:30AM to Noon

A large pond system and a towering hydraulic cliff are the center pieces of the preserve. We will take a leisurely one mile stroll down a gently sloping jeep track and should see a variety of migrant and resident flycatchers, vireos, swallows, warblers, and sparrows. By this date, Yellow-breasted Chats should be on territory, giving their fantastic songs and calls. Belted Kingfishers and Northern Rough-winged Swallows should be nesting in the cliffs. A pair of nesting Ospreys should be fun to watch. Plan to be birding until late morning. Bring binoculars, snacks, water, and lunch if you want it.

The walk is limited to six participants plus two leaders. Participants must register online and sign our liability waiver at the meeting point. Each person must register separately by sending an email with their contact information to: No drop-ins please. Please do not sign up unless you are committed to attending.
