Wheeler NWR-Limestone Bay/White Springs Dike (NABT #20, 23, 24)
March 7 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Our final trip to White Springs Dike for the season is in its third year, at a time when we are usually taking a break, as waterfowl start moving out of the area, and prior to spring migration. Duck numbers are still usually good, but with less variety, with migrating Blue-winged Teal moving through, good numbers of Green-winged Teal and Shovelers around, etc. Shorebird numbers can be good too, depending on water levels. Three years ago we got a big surprise, with the presence of a beautiful male Cinnamon Teal in the marshes near the Decatur end of the dike (this species has been seen since then in our area). 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 (256-679-8332; firstname.lastname@example.org)
