To St. Louis area birders (and others who may want to join us):
WHAT: St. Louis Audubon Society field trip, full day.
WHEN: Saturday, January 28 (5 days from now)
WHERE: Meet at Teal Pond, Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. From I-270 in north St. Louis County, take exit 31B north and follow highway 367 toward Alton. Cross the Missouri River, go past the turn for MO-94, and continue until the bridge to Alton is in sight. Take the last available right turn before the bridge, where you see the gas station; then go past the station and turn right again on Wise Road. The Teal Pond parking lot is ahead of you on your right.
MEETING TIME: 8:00 a.m. We will check Teal Pond first but will take off for other parts of the area before too long.
TENTATIVE PLAN: We will probably spend a good deal of time looking for waterfowl, gulls, and other water-related birds at Riverlands. If time permits, we may drive out the road to Confluence State Park. Other options are possible too.
I plan to have a fast-food lunch, then continue birding with anyone who wishes to stay into the afternoon.
WHO: Everyone is welcome, whether a member of St. Louis Audubon Society or not. Out-of-towners are invited!
CONDITIONS: Please dress appropriately for whatever weather is predicted. At this moment, weather.com is predicting temperatures around 28-40, mostly sunny -- but of course that can change.
LEADERS: Myself and probably some other members of the leader group.
