Early Birding, Brief Meeting & More Birding – Saturday, 19 October 2019

The John W Sellars Chapter of the TOS will go birding at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning, 19 October 2019, then meet at 10:00 a.m in WPA Cabin 13 at Cedars of Lebanon State Park. The program will be brief so we can get back to birding on the Big Day.

To go birding before the meeting, meet Stephen Zipperer at the Dixon L. Merritt Nature Center at Cedars of Lebanon State Park at 7:30 a.m. where we will consolidate into as few vehicles as possible and venture into the wilds of Wilson County in search of late fall migrants or anything else that flies.

As always, anyone and everyone interested in birding is invited and welcome to attend our birding field trips and meetings. There is never any pressure to join our organization, but we hope you find something you like and will return.

WPA Cabin 13 is centrally located in the park, but easily overlooked. Once you enter the park continue on past the Park Office (on your right after you enter the park) until you come to a fork in the road. Turn right onto WPA Road and continue on past the old rock Cedar Lodge (also on your right). After crossing two speed bumps on WPA Road, look for the shaded playground on your left. Turn left onto the gravel drive next to the shaded playground, and WPA Cabin 13 will be the first cabin on your right. Look for the Bird Meeting sign by the road.

We hope to see you Saturday, 19 October 2019.

LBC Birding, Meeting & Program – Saturday, 21 September 2019

On Saturday, 21 September 2019 the Lebanon Birding Club will do some early morning birding followed by a brief meeting and a short program on identifying five more fall warblers.

At 7:00 a.m. we will meet in the parking lot in front of the Nature Center at Cedars of Lebanon State Park, consolidate into a few vehicles, and head out in search of fall migrants and anything else with wings. Bring binoculars, something to drink, and dress for the weather. Our destination is the Central Valley Road trailhead on the North Murfreesboro Greenway. If you would prefer to drive to the trailhead yourself, you should arrive before 7:30 a.m. Here is the Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/qjThpKFmuZXwvkuT6

At 10:00 a.m. we will migrate toward WPA Cabin 13 at Cedars of Lebanon State Park for a brief planning meeting for the upcoming Big Sit on October 12, and we will review five more fall warblers.

Finally, if you will bring your lunch, we’ll hang around the cabin, eat lunch and talk about birds and birding.

As always, you do not have to be a member of our association to attend our meetings or our field trips. Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you Saturday, September 21 at 7:00 and/or 10:00 a.m. at Cedars of Lebanon State Park.
