Fall Sparrows at the Burn Field Trip
October 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDTFree – $10
The Lye Creek Prairie Burn is an 88-acre wetland in north central Montgomery County that is a part of the larger Lye Creek Prairie. Join IAS for a special fall trip in search of the special “orange” sparrows and other late migrants that pass through this unique property. With seasonal water levels, it’s possible to find both Nelson’s and LeConte’s Sparrow. The chances rise with many eyes to help search! Additionally, the burn can be good for late migrating warblers, such as Palm and Orange-crowned Warbler. Late shorebirds, such as Dunlin and snipe can also be seen.
The field trip will begin at the Burn on Saturday, October 12. Registered participants will meet at 9:00 AM and bird the site for a couple of hours, ending around lunchtime. The field trip will be led by Clint Murray and IAS Board Member, Shari McCollough. Registration is required below, as most IAS trips fill fast. For more information, email Shari at email@example.com.
