Date: 5/4/18 3:59 am From: Karen Markey <ylime...> Subject: [birders] Final reminder: WAS field trip to Hudson Mills Metropark, Sunday, May 6, 7:45 am
This is a final reminder for the WAS-sponsored tour of spring migrants at Hudson Mills Metropark on Sunday, May 6. We will meet at 7:45 am sharp at the flagpole in the front of the Activity Center. If the entry booth is unmanned, you can purchase a $10 daily parking permit from Metropark staff at the Activity Center.
Sunday morning's forecast is for showers forecast in the morning and west winds. It's two days away so let's hope the showers will come earlier or later in the day. Be prepared for wet, dewy trails, grass, and fields. We will do lots of hiking, stalking, standing, and circling back over the same trails. No pets are allowed on the nature trails. Please, no strollers either.
From Ann Arbor's northeast side, I drive to Hudson Mills as follows: head north on US-23 and take exit 49, North Territorial Road. Turn left (west) onto North Territorial and drive about eight to nine miles. A few hundred feet after passing Huron River Drive, turn left (south) into Hudson Mills Metropark. Take the second right into a large carpark that ends at the big Activity Center. If you reach Dexter-Pinckney Road (where there's a drive-through coffee shop), you have driven too far west on North Territorial.
We will bird until the bird activity slows down, usually around 11 am. You can leave the group at any time. Just ask me how to hike back to the Activity Center's carpark. If you have questions, please message me ASAP.
