LET’S GO BIRDING!!!
NO MEETING on Saturday, 16 January 2021
Hey fellow birders we are headed to Eagleville, TN in Rutherford County, this Saturday afternoon. Hopefully to see Short-eared Owls, Northern Harriers and Sandhill Cranes.
DATE: Saturday, January 16, 2021
MEET UP: Swamp Rd in Eagleville
DIRECTIONS: From Cedars of Lebanon Park Entrance head South on HWY 231 (towards Murfreesboro) approximately 17.9 miles to the stop light at New Salem Rd, (HWY 99). Turn LEFT onto New Salem Rd. Stay on New Salem Rd. for approximately 14.2 miles to North Lane. North Lane Tee’s into New Salem Rd, HWY99 on the Right. Turn RIGHT onto North Lane. Go about 1 mile and Swamp Rd will be on your left. Turn LEFT onto Swamp Rd and go about .8 to .9 miles to the stop sign. Little Rock Rd will be on your Right. This is the area where we will meet up. Look for others gathered around my White 4 door Ford truck. You can also get to Eagleville by going I-840.
TIME: 3:30PM until Dark
The owls, if they are there, will not fly until after the sun sets so be prepared for cooler temperatures after the sun goes down. We will park along a narrow road with not much shoulder. There is usually not a lot of traffic in the area. There should be plenty of Sandhill Cranes and Northern Harriers. If we cancel because of rain we will schedule a Saturday afternoon in January. The birds will be here most of the Winter.
