Join members and friends of Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society on Saturday May 20, 2017, for a field trip to Siloam Springs City Lake. Meet 9 AM in the parking area off Dawn Hill East Road on the lake’s south side. If you use GPS: 36 13 21.12 N and 94 32 21.83 W. Nesting Baltimore Orioles, Warbling Vireos, Red-headed Woodpeckers, and many other birds are likely. We will also check out the native flowers (there is a good stand of Swamp Milkweed at the lake). Slow, easy walk to explore this approximately 60-acre lake, an impoundment of Flint Creek. Everyone is welcome. You do not have to be an experienced bird watcher to participate. The lake is within a few miles of Eagle Watch Nature Trail just west of Gentry, so it would be easy to make a bigger and more interesting day by visiting both.
