In this morning trip we will bird the Lincoln Wastewater Treatment Plant. There are several large ponds which can hold a variety of ducks. Expect to see Canvasback, American Wigeon, and Redhead. Depending on the water level, we might see shorebirds such as Black-necked Stilt, Greater Yellowlegs, Long-billed Dowitcher, Dunlin, and Least Sandpipers. While driving on the levees around the ponds, we will search the adjacent trees, fields, and fence posts for raptors, sparrows, woodpeckers, and other resident species. A small wetland area visible from the levees can hold rails, herons, egrets, gallinules, and Marsh Wrens. Contact trip leader if weather is questionable. Meet at the Indian Hill Road Park-n-Ride at 8:00 AM. Take I-80 West to Indian Hill/Newcastle Rd exit. Turn left to go over freeway to the Park-n-Ride. It’s about 25 minutes from there to the LWWTP. We will need to sign in at the office.
