Tom Driscoll will be leading this 3-day field trip. Here's the information:
You may stay in Boone, Blowing Rock, or wherever. Tom is staying at the Quality Inn & Suites University. A few hotels are listed below.
We will meet Saturday morning (May 27) in Boone near the intersection of Hwys. 321 and 105, and proceed to Valle Crucis Community Park. We then go to Beacon Heights, then Trout Lake, and end near Boone looking for Bobolinks.
On Sunday (May 28), we meet early and go to Meat Camp Environmental Area, Rich Mountain Rd., and Elk Knob State Park. We may squeeze in Jeffress Park along the Parkway.
Monday morning (May 29), we will look for birds we did not see and may return to some areas we visited Saturday or Sunday.
You are welcome to leave or start the trip at any time or place.
Breakfast is on your own. Please bring your lunch Saturday and Sunday. We will try to dine together each evening.
Some birds we hope to see: Willow and Least Flycatcher; Yellow, Blue-winged, Golden-winged, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, and Canada Warblers; Scarlet Tanager; Baltimore Oriole, and more. We average about 90 species on these trips.
We want to limit the group to 15. There is a fee of $50 for the New Hope Audubon Society. We encourage carpooling where possible!
