Date: 11/13/18 10:16 am From: Mike Grant <mikecurlew...> Subject: St. Louis Audubon field trip, Saturday, November 17
To St. Louis area birders (and others who may want to join us):
WHAT: St. Louis Audubon Society field trip, half day.
WHEN: Saturday, November 17
WHERE: Meet at Teal Pond, Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. From I-270 in north St. Louis County, take exit 31B north and follow highway 367 toward Alton. Cross the Missouri River, go past the turn for MO-94, and continue until the bridge to Alton is in sight. Take the last available right turn before the bridge, where you see the gas station; then go past the station and turn right again on Wise Road. The Teal Pond parking lot is ahead of you on your right.
MEETING TIME: 8:00 a.m. We will check Teal Pond first but will take off for other parts of the area before too long.
TENTATIVE PLAN: We will probably spend a good deal of time looking for waterfowl, larids (gulls & terns), and other water-related birds at Riverlands. If time permits, we may drive Cora Island Rd. The trip is expected to end at about noon.
WHO: Everyone is welcome, whether a member of St. Louis Audubon Society or not. Out-of-towners are invited!
CONDITIONS: Please dress appropriately for whatever weather is predicted. Remember that it always seems more extreme at Riverlands.
LEADERS: Myself, and possibly some other members of the leader group.
