Wheeler NWR-Beaverdam Peninsula Tower/Limestone Bay/Arrowhead Landing/White Springs Dike (NABT #20, 23, 24) – 3 March, 2018 (SATURDAY) 8:00 am (NOTE LATER MEETING TIME)
Our final trip to White Springs Dike for the year is in its second year, at a time when we are usually taking a break, as waterfowl start moving out of the area, and prior to spring migration. Last year’s trip was great, with good numbers of several duck species, including especially Blue- and Green-winged Teal, Shoveler and Gadwall. However the big find was a beautiful and rare male Cinnamon Teal, which hung around in the marsh area near the Decatur end of the Dike on into mid-March., to the delight of birders and photographers alike. Take the Mooresville exit off I-565, go south on Mooresville Road and meet at the parking area near where it intersects with old Highway 20 (34.627442 -86.880186). – Ken Ward, Leader (256-837-5646; email@example.com)
