Date: 4/7/17 3:48 am From: Karen Markey <ylime...> Subject: [birders] Reminder: Arb walk, Sat., 4/8, 8 am, in search of early spring migrants
This is a final reminder about tomorrow's Washtenaw Audubon Society-sponsored Arb walk in search of early spring migrants such as Yellow-bellied sapsuckers, White-throated sparrows, Winter wrens, Fox sparrows, Ruby- and Golden-crowned kinglets, and Brown creepers. We will be on the lookout for first warblers -- Yellow-rumped, Pine, and Orange-crowned. Louisiana waterthrush would be a rarity but we heard and some birders saw one on this same field trip last year.
We will wander the Arb's meandering gravel and dirt paths. Dress appropriately for a very cold start to a warmer day -- coat, gloves, scarf, hat, and sensible footwear. No strollers, dogs, or wagons please. Walk should end between 10:30 and 11 AM. We will meet at the Riverview entrance to the Arb at 8 AM sharp.
