Lye Creek Burn Longspur Field Trip

April 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am EDT

Free – $10
The Lye Creek Burn is an 88-acre wetland in north central Montgomery County that is a part of the larger Lye Creek Prairie. The site and it’s birding potential were first discovered in April 2001 as Clint Murray was on my way to check some corn fields he had marked for Smith’s Longspurs. Upon seeing the site and shorebirds present, he knew immediately that this was a place to watch.
The field trip will begin at the Burn on Saturday, April 10. Registered participants will meet at 9:00 AM ET and bird the site for a couple of hours, ending around lunchtime. In recent years, The Burn has been the place to be for Smith’s Longspurs and American Golden Plovers. Both of which will be targets during the morning birding. By this date, an assortment of waterbirds, shorebirds, and sparrows should also be present.
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.
To comply with CDC recommendations, all IAS field trips until further notice will have the follow restrictions:
  • All IAS trip participants must pre-register in advance for upcoming field trips
  • All IAS 2020 Field Trips are limited to 15 participants
  • All participants should utilize facial covering and/or social distancing during the field trip
  • All participants should plan on traveling separately rather than carpool during multiple location trips

All participants must read and agree to the IAS Field Trip Release to participate in IAS led events and trips.  Field trips are free for IAS- Members and $10 for non-members. For more information, message Shari McCollough.
