August Field Trip:

August 6, 2022 (Sat.)  Clinton Lake – East Bloomington – meet at the parking lot east of the Wakarusa Museum, not the swim beach.  We will start at 7:30 am to beat the heat. We will take an easy walk around the parking lot and edge of lake primarily for swallows.  Also a good chance for Scissortail Flycatchers and a host of other flycatchers and kingbirds in the area.  Along the beach we should find several species of gulls, and early shorebirds returning from breeding in Canada. Forster’s, Black and Caspian terns are often here.  Buntings, grosbeaks, orioles, even warblers and tanagers are possible as fall migration is underway.  Plan to wrap up the field trip by 9:00 or 9:30 am. A few extra binoculars will be available for loan. Contact Roger Boyd at rboydbird69@gmail.com or 785-424-0595 for more information.
