Field Trips

Field trips will be announced on this page, at our PRAS meetings, in the PRAS newsletter, The Red Tail, and by email. Sightings may be emailed and/or posted on our social media.


Wednesday Morning Birding Sept 14th - Oct 5th

Hopefully, PRAS Wednesday Morning Birding will experience warm autumn weather and excellent birding as enjoyed in the past.  We look forward to these field trips as they serve as a catalyst to renew friendships and share stories of our summer and past adventures.  Remember to access the PRAS website to check for changes made to the schedule before attending a field trip.  Emails and Facebook will also publicize changes made and bird sightings lists for each trip. 

No field trip is currently planned for the Wednesday September 7th.
