September Field Trip Results

From: user 9.

Just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who came out for the field trip. The weather was overcast which made identification a little more difficult and the birds were fairly quiet but we did pretty good for our first trip.

I had chosen to take us to a suburban area along the Lake Creek Trail. We started from the trailhead at Broadmeade and Braes Valley St in north Austin. It technically might be in Travis County but it's a wonderful area and illustrates that birding can be great even in the "city". You should walk this pathway and bird along Lake Creek - you'll enjoy yourself.

Here is a list of what we saw including birds from the participants who got there a little earlier than 9am.

Red-bellied Woodpecker
Lesser Yellowlegs
Least Sandpiper
Killdeer
White-winged Dove
Starling
House Sparrow
Snowy Egret
Blue Jay
American Crow
Rock Dove
Great-tailed Grackle
Cooper's Hawk
Mockingbird
Eastern Phoebe
Barn Swallow
Cardinal
Chimney Swift
Carolina Chickadee
Great Egret
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
Carolina Wren
Red-winged Blackbird
Lesser Goldfinch
Orange-crowned Warbler
American Kestrel

Not bad for a short 2 hour field trip.

Next meeting is October 28th in the conference room of the HEB at 1431 & 183 at 7pm.
Next field trip is November 7th at 8am, location details to be announced.

Please join us and bring a friend!
