You can find it on some on-line street maps. However, if you can't find it, it is on the Norths side of the circle where Harrison and Diagonal Dr. come together. There will be a small parking lot there and gravel road to the model airplane field is beyond the gate.

Hi, James, Janine and others who bird Couterie,

Need directions to get to the path that runs next to the air field, I call it, at the edge of Couterie. I'm looking at the City Park map and not finding it. Can anyone help me so I can pass it on to a friend coming through the area?

Thanks so much!


Terence Skelton

Linda and I birded Couturie this morning and looked for, but did not relocate the ani. We did however, have a Black-billed Cuckoo fly in to us playing an ani recording. We had 11 species of warblers with one Nashville (foraging in ragweed, of course...but with a Tennessee...hah!) and one Chestnut-sided being the highlights for warblers. Eastern Phoebe (1) and Rose-breasted Grosbeak (1 female) were both FOS for us. The eBird list is below. -j
