February Field Trip-Mill Creek Morning Walk

Saturday, February 22, 9:00 a.m.
Harper Joy Theatre Parking Lot

During the winter months a walk along Mill Creek can be interesting. After a short stop behind
the old K-Mart store to scope for waterfowl, we’ll continue on to the Corp of Engineers Project
Office parking lot where we’ll leave our cars and walk up to Rooks Park. Our target birds will be
common merganser, hooded merganser, and great blue heron, but who knows what else might
show up. (Mallards, and canada geese are a sure bet.) While walking through Rooks Park we’ll
keep an eye out for Bewick’s wren, downy woodpecker, song sparrow, and hopefully other
species such as a ruby crowned kinglet and pileated woodpecker.

Linda Hanson, Judy Treman and Ginger Shoemake will lead the trip. Dress for winter weather
and join them for this HALF-DAY trip. If you have questions contact Ginger: Housewren084@gmail.com.
