This former airfield now provides habitat for endangered grassland breeding birds. We hope to find both Grasshopper Sparrow and Eastern Meadowlark on territory in these fields. Bobolinks’ bold and unusual songs and plumage should be a nice bonus on this trip. We will be walking primarily on flat, grassy terrain for a mile or two for the endangered species. We may also extend the walk into some wooded trails in search of other species later in the morning. Target endangered breeding species: Grasshopper Sparrow, Eastern Meadowlark.

BBC field trips are open to all participants. Unless otherwise stated, all trips are free to attend and do not need preregistration. You do not need to be a club member to attend, though we hope you will join. See the Field Trip FAQ for answers to general questions. Contact leaders for more details about specific trips.

We follow all policies of field trip location property owners and co-sponsoring organizations. These may include ongoing public health measures. Some participants may choose to wear a face mask for health purposes. We support their right to do so.

We hope to see you out birding soon!
