Join us for an early spring outing as we explore the overgrown fields and pastures of Bells Bend Park.  We’ll begin just before dawn at Bells Bend Park to look and listen for owls and American Woodcock, the males of which hopefully will still be “peenting” and displaying their way into the hearts of the females just before dawn.  Once things lighten up, we’ll meander along the trails in search of sparrows, waterfowl, Northern Harrier, and other early spring arrivals.  We’ll meet at 5:30 a.m. at the Poplar Creek trailhead (the FIRST park entrance) for the pre-dawn portion of our trip.  For those wishing to sleep in a bit, you can join us around 7:00 at the nature center parking lot (the SECOND park entrance) for the daytime portion of our trip. We should wrap up around lunchtime.  Please dress in layers, and wear appropriate footwear as the grassy trails can be damp.  (Contact information: ms722@bellsouth.net. Please include “NTOS Field Trip” in the subject line.)
