Saturday, September 9th, Duck River Unit, TN NWR
By early September, shorebird migration should be in full swing, and wading birds (herons and egrets) should still be present in good numbers.  Land bird migration should be ticking up as well, and of course there’s always a chance for a rarity or two.  We will slowly drive around the refuge loop stopping often to scan various pools, bays, and pastures for birds.  For logistical reasons, carpooling is highly encouraged.  We’ll meet at the MTA Park-and-Ride in Bellevue at 6:15am or you can meet us at the refuge entrance at 8:00am.  Please dress for the (hot) weather and bring plenty of water and snacks.  We should finish up in the early afternoon.
