Field Trip to Duck River Unit – Saturday, 22 July 2017

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, 22 July 2017.

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 or Lebanon so plan accordingly. We will meet at 7:30 AM in the parking lot in front of Dollar General in New Johnsonville. The address is: 568 Broadway Avenue, New Johnsonville, TN 37134

Here is a Google map to the location:

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.
