Spring Migration at John Heinz Wildlife Refuge

Let's see what we can find at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge during the spring migration.  We'll meet in the parking lot at 8 am and start our event.  For those early birds meet in the parking lot early and shoot the sunrise and meet back at the parking lot at 8.  I'll post more details as the date gets closer.  Hope to see everyone there.

    I had a great time meeting everyone that came out today. Thanks so much for joining us. The weather was gorgeous and we had some really great birding. If you are interested here is the list of birds we saw today - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S13915856

    I'm planning to be an "early bird" and get there at 6. Probably won't be able to stay much past about 9 a.m., so if I don't get there early I won't get there at all.

    I should be there tomorrow, but closer to 8am.

    Looks like it should be decent weather for the meet up and for anyone who wants to be there first thing in the morning I'll be in the parking lot at 6am. I drive a silver Chevy Lumina and you can check my profile pic to see what I look like if we haven't met yet. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and getting back to John Heinz, it's been a while.

    Can't make it this time. Was at a wedding in Philly this weekend and stopped by refuge on way home. A couple of dozen teal (both green and blue) were in water closest to center. Lots of tree swallows in boxes very close to boardwalk. Didn't walk very far but it looks like lots of photo ops available.

    I'd love to meet earlier than 8-so what time are you thinking? I guess I could check what time sunrise is on that date???

    I'd love to attend this, I'm a volunteer with the John Heinz NWR. There's a bicycle event the same day that I've attended the last couple years, not sure what I'm doing yet.
    It's been recently confirmed that there is a breeding pair of eagles that appear to be feeding a recently hatched chick or chicks. Bring your longest lens - the nest is very far away. If the foliage is out by then, it will be even more challenging.

      Thanks for the information Mark. Well if you don't make the bicycling event hopefully you can join us. Good to know your a volunteer there.

      Excellent Denise, it will be nice to meet you.

    I don't get to many of these events (I live outside Philly, so it's a 2 hour drive or more to the South Jersey locations). But this one's practically in my backyard!

    • Ray H.

      That's great Donna, see you there.

      March 18, 2013

  • Ray H.

    I'm looking forward to meeting some of you for the first time and seeing some familiar faces again. I'll be there at 6am for sunrise for anyone else who is interested in getting there that early. I'm looking forward to it!

    FYI Sunrise is at 6 AM on 28 April. I will miss that!
