Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Prothro Junction commuter lot located on the southeast side of the interstate at Exit 157 off I-40 East (heading from Little Rock towards Memphis). We should arrive at the airport terminal around 8:30 a.m. for anyone who’d like to meet us there. You are welcome to use the terminal’s bathrooms. Lapland and Smith’s Longspurs, Short-eared Owls, Pipits, and sparrows will be our target birds. Dress in layers; bring gloves, be prepared for wind and cold. Knee-high boots are essential for walking through the Aristida grass. On the way back to Little Rock, we’ll check the open fields for flocks of geese and ducks.
Reminder: February 14-17 is the 2014 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Participate as a citizen scientist by counting the birds in your yard and submitting your sightings to the GBBC website at http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/
