Field Trip – Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge March 29, 2014

Meet at 7:00 a.m. in North Little Rock at the Other Center parking lot on the east side of the lot behind McDonald’s.  The Other Center is located across from McCain Mall, on McCain Blvd.  Take Exit 1 West, off Hwy. 67/167.  We’ll arrive at Bald Knob NWR at around 8:30 a.m. for those who want to meet us there.  The refuge is also a National Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA).  Target birds will be lingering ducks and early-arriving shorebirds, herons, egrets, and night-herons.  If you own a scope, bring it.  Very little walking will be involved.  This is a great opportunity to compare the refuge’s spring migrating species in breeding plumage with the fall migrants we’ll see on our August 2014 trip.  This is a morning trip.  There is no bathroom on-site.  There is a McDonald’s just off Hwy. 67/167 at the Bald Knob exit.  Go to for more information about the refuge.

Meet at 7 AM
