Read all about it! This edition includes data from the 2023 Christmas Bird Count, a special message from the region’s new eBird reviews, information of upcoming ASCA events, and some special thoughts from several of our members.
Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Prothro Junction commuter lot located on the southeast side of I-40 East at Exit 157. Turn right at the intersection, then immediately turn left into the commuter lot. We should arrive at the airport around 8:30 a.m. for anyone who would like to meet us there. Lapland and Smith’s Longspurs, Short-eared Owls,
American Pipits, and sparrows will be our target birds.
Dress in layers; bring gloves, be prepared for wind and cold
temperatures. Knee-high boots are essential for walking through the
grass. On the drive back to Little Rock, we’ll scan the open fields for flocks of geese and ducks.
Reminder: February 16-19 is the 2024 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Participate as a citizen scientist by joining the field trip, or counting birds anywhere you find them. Be sure to submit your sightings to eBird.
