First Saturday Birding
Monthly field trips are free and open to the public. All monthly field trips will meet at 7:30 AM on the first Saturday of each month (Sept-May). Our destination and target birds will be determined by the group that assembles at that time and will usually be confined to Story, Boone, Polk or Hamilton Counties. Expect to be back at the parking lot generally between noon and 1:00 PM. ..... We will meet at the public parking lot bordered by Wild Birds, Unlimited (213 Duff Ave), Harold Pike Construction and the Union Pacific railroad tracks (GPS coordinates: 42.024014, -93.611582). Carpooling will be highly encouraged. ..... For more information contact Eric Ollie at (515) 238-3610 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
