Birding Trip to Indian Creek Greenway (NABT)
May 8, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 amFree
The Indian Creek Greenway is a pleasant place to bird, with opportunities to get good looks at migrants. The major reason this trip was planned a few years back was to look for Mourning Warblers. This species is a secretive late spring migrant through this area that is rarely seen. We have had good trips here the past 4-5 years, e.g., Mourning, Wilson and Canada Warblers, Warbling Vireo, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Yellow-crowned Night Heron and a variety of other species.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR REGULAR MEETING SPOT, AT THE TRAILHEAD ON OLD MADISON PIKE, MAY OR MAY NOT BE ACCESSIBLE BY THIS TIME. HOWEVER, WE CAN AND WILL PLAN TO ACCESS THE GREENWAY VIA THE CREEKWOOD SUBDIVISION, JUST NORTH OF THE INTERSECTION OF FARROW AND SLAUGHTER ROADS. THERE WILL BE A SIGN AND ADDITIONAL ONES TO DIRECT YOU THROUGH THE SUBDIVISION TO A PARKING AREA. FROM THERE WE’LL BIRD TO THE SOUTH, TOWARD OUR REGULAR MEETING SPOT. I should note too that we will be a couple of miles from the regular meeting spot; since some of our best bird spots are down toward that end, we’ll probably do a great deal of walking on this trip. – Ken Ward, Leader (256-837-5646)
