Wednesday Morning Birding Starts September 6th!
We will begin our fall Wednesday Morning Birding on September 6th. Last spring we averaged over 16 birders per outing. These sites have been picked because of ease of access and anticipated shorebirds/warblers/sparrows that may migrating. At this time this schedule is firm but check the website on Tuesday before the event to learn of any last minute changes.
