Lakefront Shorebirds Field Trip I
July 28 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am EDTFree – $15
IAS is returning to Lake Michigan for a pair of late summer tours for some prime shorebirds along the lakefront. Participants will meet at the Miller Beach, Lake St. beach parking lot at 7am central/8am eastern time for a morning of shorebird pursuit, with the early, larger shorebirds being the target species of the morning. We’re in the window for a wide selection of shorebirds, from larger Willets, Whimbrels, and Godwits, and smaller Red Knots, Baird’s Sandpipers, and plovers. We’ll conclude around 11am, and may visit a few other lakefront sites during the morning depending on the birding conditions.
Participants should be prepared to pay small parking fees for Miller Beach. Participants will meet IAS Board Member and Dunes-Calumet Audubon President Matt Beatty, and can contact before the trip at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is free for both Dunes-Calumet Audubon and IAS members, and $15 for non-IAS members.
We hope to see you there!
