On Saturday, 2 February 2019 the Lebanon (John W Sellars) Chapter TOS will join the Nashville Chapter on a field trip to Robertson County. Our trip leader will be Tony Lance who will meet us at the Dunkin’ Donuts at Exit 24 (Pleasant View/Springfield) on I-24.
We will be birding on thousands of acres of farmland along large open fields where the wind is biting in cold weather so dress appropriately. Species we hope to see include Horned Larks, Eastern Meadowlarks, American Pipits, Lapland Longspurs, White-crowned Sparrows, Savannah Sparrows, Northern Harriers, and Loggerhead Shrikes. And of course lots, lots more. Bring binoculars and a scope if you have one.
The outing should finish shortly after midday, so be sure to bring a lunch and water.
The Field Trip scheduled for Saturday, 19 January 2019 has been canceled due to weather
Saturday January 19, 2019, weather permitting, we will meet at the Laguardo Recreation Area on HWY 109 at 8:00 AM. We will spend the morning birding various spots around the lake in Wilson County looking for ducks, pelicans, and other water birds. We will check on the Bald Eagle’s nest out from Cedar Creek Recreational Area while there.
Hopefully the recent snows and cold weather north of here will push some waterfowl this way. If the weather looks bad, we will send out a cancellation. Be careful of the road construction along HWY 109. Hope to see you on Saturday.
