Here’s an idea from a California bird club that we are calling Do It Yourself Field Trips. These will start as local trips but could expand beyond our area. Each month at a Zoom event an area will be chosen, and a leader will describe the location and choose 5 target species for that area. Anyone interested can visit the area, record the species they see, and report back at the Zoom event the next month. Stories, photos, and lists can be shared during these sessions. You can visit these areas on your own.
February’s session #1 was Aqua Vitae Road. The five target birds were Horned Lark, Barred Owl, Peregrine Falcon, Song Sparrow, and Savannah Sparrow.
The March location is the 1840 Oxbow, Northampton, and the target birds are Wood Duck, Green-winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck, Hooded Merganser, and Bald Eagle.
If you wish to join the March DIY Zoom, report your findings at Aqua Vitae, and/or learn of April’s field trip location, e-mail [email protected]. Join us, it’s fun!!
