Subject: [birders] Washtenaw Audubon's field trip report Ottawa Nat'l Wildlife Refuge
Sunday, February 19, a small group of WAS members ventured to Ottawa
National Wildlife Refuge in Ohio for some great birding. Apparently, now,
if you attend a WAS field trip, you will see a Northern Saw-whet Owl, as
this is the second field trip in a row to do so! This individual was
extremely easy, hanging out next to the parking lot for all to see. Other
highlights were extemely close looks at a cooperative Northern Shrike, a
large flock of Greater White-fronted Geese mixed in with an even larger
flock of Snow Geese (made up of both morphs) mixed in with an even larger
flock of Tundra/Trumpeter Swans--assuming both were in there, although we
didn't ID most of them to species. 15+ Bald Eagles, ~15 species of
waterfowl, a Rough-legged Hawk, and extremely beautiful weather made for a
great outing. Hope you can join us for the next one.-- From Bryn Martin,
WAS Field Trip Coordinator

See Washtenaw Audubon's Facebook Page for photos from the trip, and check
out our website, www.washtenawaudubon.org, for future trips coming up soon.

Good birding,
Juliet Berger
