St. Louis Audubon Society will be hosting their annual American Woodcock/Owl
Prowl on Saturday, March 11 at Busch Conservation Area beginning at 5 pm.
We will meet at the Hampton Lake parking lot at 5 pm (directions below and
on the St. Louis Audubon website:
<> .)   We will first search for owls at a few
locations in Busch CA until around 6 pm.   We will then proceed to the Blue
Grosbeak trail parking lot to hear, and hopefully see, the woodcocks
demonstrate.  The event should be completed around 7 pm.  


Make sure to monitor MOBirds for updates.  Given the rainy/snowy forecast,
this may have to be canceled. If anybody has any scouting reports please
send them to me as I have been away.


It is always cooler, especially near dark, at Busch so dress appropriately.
Bring your own binoculars. 


All birders are invited, and you do not need to be a St. Louis Audubon
member.  This is also a good trip for beginners and children over age 6.
