My reporting area includes all of Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the
northern edge of the area reaching Beltzville State Park and the southern
edge reaching Peace Valley Park in Bucks County. Updates are typically done
every Friday, more often when necessary.
There will be a field trip to the Trexler Nature Preserve on September 16th.
Meet at the Lehigh Valley Zoo parking lot at the barn at 9:30 AM. Trip
leader will Chris Hugosson.
There will also be a field trip to the Scotts Mountain hawkwatch at Merrill
Creek Reservoir on September 23rd. Meet at the Park & Ride lot at the
William Penn Highway exit of Route 33, just south of Route 22 at 7:30 AM. I
will be leading this trip.
Directions to many of the sites in this report can be found in the area’s
birding guidebook, “Birds of the Lehigh Valley and Vicinity”. A completely
revised, 2nd edition of the book can be ordered at:
