As anyone familiar with Middle Tennessee’s avifauna knows, the Duck River unit of the Tennessee NWR is one of the top birding hotspots in the region.  By early September, shorebird migration should be in full swing, and wading birds (herons and egrets) should still be present in good numbers.  Land bird migration should be ticking up as well, and of course there’s always a chance for a rarity or two.  We will slowly drive around the refuge loop stopping often to scan various pools, bays, and pastures for birds.  For logistical reasons, carpooling is highly encouraged.  We’ll meet at the refuge entrance at 8:00am.  Please dress for the (hot) weather and bring plenty of water and snacks.  We should finish up in the early afternoon.  (Contact information: ms722@bellsouth.net  Please include “NTOS Field Trip” in the subject line.)
