2015 Field Trip Schedule
7:30pm - 9pm
What does the Rail say?
Rails, the rare and elusive birds of the marsh, are most often heard rather than seen. We will be doing a survey of Niagara Pond and the Swamp Trail area to listen for some of these infrequent visitors.
Presque Isle: Leo's Landing
7:30am - Noon
Sure, I can ID Shore Birds.
Shorebirds are some of the most difficult birds to identify. On this trip out to Gull Point (3 mile hike), we'll be perched in the observation platform and attempting to ID shore birds at a distance.
Presque Isle: Gull Point Trailhead
9:00am - 11:00am
Together we'll conduct a survey of the birds at Laura Olson Memorial Sanctuary.
7:30am - 10:30am
During migration, waterfowl can be seen crossing the lake by the thousands. They can also be found hanging out in staging areas on the bay. We'll be looking for residents and migrants alike as we move from the lake to the bay on this trip.
Presque Isle: Sunset Point
