Fort River Refuge

Join Ted Gilliland at the Fort River Division of the Conte NWR in Hadley as he looks for a variety of arriving Spring migrants and breeding species in this delightful setting with varied habitats.   Who knows what he’ll find, but species included may be an American Kestral, Eastern Phoebe, Tree Swallow, Barn Swallow, Rusty Blackbird, and possibly a Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Wood and Swainson’s Thrush, Veery, Brown Thrasher, along with various sparrow species, vireos and other warbler species.  The 1.2 mile Fort River Trail is fully accessible, including boardwalks and has occasional benches for resting.  Meet Ted (480-381-5617)  in the lower parking lot at the Refuge, 69 Moody Bridge Road, Hadley.  (E/M)
