7:30 am - 11:00 am
Field Trip Leader: Amy Neale
Join Amy Neale on her farm in southern Madison County for a morning hike scouting for fall birds. We’ll look for passing sparrows, raptors and resident birds. Depending on our route, be prepared for walking on some uneven terrain, up hills, and through damp fields.
If you want to join forces for carpooling to Madison County, meet at the Starbucks Parking Lot in Hollymead Shopping Center. Be prepared to leave this location no later than 7:30, so that we’ll be convened and ready to hike with Amy by 8:00.
