Field Trip to Duck River Unit – 23 July 2016

druThe John W Sellars – Lebanon Chapter of TOS does not meet in July, but we have a field trip to the Duck River Unit near New Johnsonville in West Tennessee on Saturday, 23 July 2016.

Sack-LunchThis is an all day event and bathrooms are not readily available. You will need to bring lunch, drinks and any snacks you may want. It takes at least 2 hours to get there from Murfreesboro and 2.5 hours from Lebanon.

Various sandpipers & plovers, Caspian & Black Terns, American White Pelicans, various herons (great blue, little blue & green) & egrets (great, snowy & cattle) are all possible. Stephen suggests making yourself familiar with Black Terns in non-breeding plumage, and brushing up on waders and shorebirds.
