Commons Ford Prairie Bird Walk – Travis Audubon
Aug 18 @ 7:00 am – 11:30 am

Led by Shelia Hargis, this field trip is limited to 12 participants and reservations are required. Register here.  August can be a very interesting time for the birders who brave the hot temperatures to get out and see what is happening. We’ll walk even slower than normal identifying and discussing bird behavior, discussing the natural history of some of the species we encounter, practicing our ID skills on immature birds, and practicing our birding-by-ear skills.
