Leighton Area Shorebird Trip, Wheeler Dam

August 25 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

(NABT #2, 4, 5) – 25 August, 2018 (SATURDAY) 7:00 am We will explore the Leighton area and swing by Wheeler Dam on this trip. We’ll be looking primarily for shorebird migrants, whose movement through our area should be peaking; our success will depend largely on water levels. We should pick up some neo-tropical songbird migrants as well. We’ll meet at the Ingalls Boat Harbor Pavilion in Decatur: from the direction of Huntsville, cross the river bridge and take the…

Indian Creek Greenway

September 15 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

15 September, 2018 (SATURDAY) 7:00 am Indian Creek Greenway has been an interesting late spring migration spot for NABS the last few years. Our fall trip can also be productive, yielding a nice variety of songbird migrants, not to mention being a pretty place to bird. We’ll be meeting at the greenway trailhead on Old Madison Pike, a bit east of its intersection with Slaughter Road. The new parking lot is nice, just east of the bridge on the north…

Swan Creek Wildlife Management Area

September 22 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

(NABT #21) – 22 September, 2018 (SATURDAY) 7:00 am This trip targets neotropical songbird migrants and shorebirds (depending on water levels), either breeding residents heading south or transients passing through from the north, mostly on their way to Central and South America. As many or more birds actually pass through our area in the fall than in spring, but the migration period is longer and a defined peak is hard to pinpoint. We will meet at the southernmost parking lot…

Monte Sano State Park Outing

October 6 @ 7:00 am - 1:00 pm

Monte Sano State Park (NABT #29) - 6 October, 2018 (SATURDAY) 7:00 am We will be looking again for fall migrants, especially warblers; Monte Sano is one of the better birding spots in the state during migration. Take Monte Sano Boulevard off Governors Drive at the top of the mountain and follow the signs to the park; once there, go in the direction of headquarters and park at the Camp Store, in the gravel, if possible. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE…
