ST. LOUIS AUDUBON SOCIETY CARLYLE PELAGIC TRIP-SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2015 (PELAGIC PORTION 1:00-4:00 PM).
The SLAS Carlyle Pelagic Trip will be held on Saturday September 12, 2015. Meet at the McDonald's in Carlyle, on highway 127 near highway 50 at 7:30 am. We will spend the morning watching for abundant migrant land birds in Hazlet State Park and will search the lake for Sabine's Gull, Jaegers and other rarities from the boats and from shore in the afternoon, with further possibilities for shorebirding or landbirding as conditions warrant. The boat ride will begin after a break for lunch and will run from 1:00-4:00 pm, but you MUST arrive by 12:45 am to board the boat. SABINE'S GULL is often seen on this trip and we've had a great run with RED PHALAROPE in recent years, often seeing this great pelagic bird as close as 25 feet! Another highlight (not seen every year) is BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER. The extra 50 miles to the east makes this bird just a little more likely! The day list will likely run around 90 species. The land-based portion of the trip is free as always. The Pelagic Trip is $30 per person. Make your reservation for the Pelagic by sending an e-mail to [log in to unmask]. Your reservation will be confirmed once your check is received. Send your check, made payable to Joe Eades to 517 Willow Lane, Kirkwood, MO 63122. There will be no refunds as the proceeds must cover boat rental and gas. Bring a hat, sunscreen, water, snacks, insect repellant (if you desire), and comfortable walking shoes. We also need as much popcorn as we can get our hands on! This really brings the gulls in around the boat for great views. Expect several hours of walking. Confirmed trip participants will receive further information as the trip draws near. Trip Leader/Coordinator: Joe Eades ([log in to unmask])
