LBC Woods Reservoir Field Trip – Saturday, 21 November 2020

Nov. 21, 2020
Woods Reservoir,  Franklin Co.

14 birders met up for the John W. Sellars Chapter of TOS bird outing around Woods Reservoir and Coffee County. It was a beautiful day. At Woods Reservoir we had lots of Common Loons (seen and heard), Am. Coots, Pied-billed, and Horned Grebes, Ring-billed, Bonaparte, and a 1st year Lesser Black-backed Gull, Lesser Scaup, Mallard, Green-winged Teal, Gadwall, Hooded Merganser, Bufflehead ducks. Sandhill Cranes (seen and heard), Bald Eagles, Winter Wren (seen and heard), both species of  Kinglets, White-breasted, Red-breasted, and Brown-headed nuthatches were seen and heard. The Brown-headed Nuthatch was a lifer for 4 of the birders. The ponds in Coffee County were mostly void of ducks. The Hickerson Rd Sod Farm had more sod removed than I have ever seen. We had Gadwalls in the pond, Killeen and Eastern Meadowlark, and a N. Harrier, finally we had 35 Sandhill Cranes at Lake Lola on Fountain Grove Rd.

Thanks to all who join in the outing.

Good birding,
