Field Trip Dec. 11, 2021 (Sat.)  Baker Wetlands- East Gate. 8 a.m. Meet at east parking lot off of Haskell Ave. (E. 1500 Rd and N 1250 Rd).  Christmas Bird Count is a week away so this is a warm-up for that event. We will focus on waterfowl that should be on Maple Marsh and the Santa Fe Track.  If the weather is decent we will walk to the center crossroads of the wetlands and back.  Along N. 1250 Rd we will focus on a variety of sparrows and wrens, similar to the Oct. field trip.   Distance we walk will largely depend on weather and bird activity.  For those interested, we will conclude the field trip by driving east along N 1250 Rd past O’Connell road primarily looking for Horned Larks and Lapland Longspurs.  All levels of interest and experience are invited.  A few extra binoculars will be available for loan. Contact Roger Boyd at rboydbird69@gmail.com or 785-424-0595 for more information.
