FIELD TRIP: Commons Ford Prairie Bird Walk with Shelia Hargis

August can be a very interesting time for the birders who brave the hot temperatures to get out and see what is happening. Our breeding birds are hastily finishing up their breeding efforts and some early migrants are starting to show up. Join Shelia Hargis for a field trip focusing on both the breeding birds at Commons Ford and the migrants passing through. We’ll walk even slower than normal identifying and discussing bird behavior, discussing the natural history of some of the species we encounter, practicing our ID skills on immature birds, and practicing our birding-by-ear skills.

The trip is limited to 12 participants and reservations are required. More details will be provided a week or so before the field trip.For questions, contact Shelia at
