Upcoming Field Trips

               
St. George Island, FL
April 24 - 26, 2015

Located just off the panhandle and south of Eastpoint, FL, St. George is a migrant-trap for birds making their way back to North America, vying for spring breeding territories from their wintering grounds in Central and South America. These neo-tropical migrants may include warblers such as Blackpoll and Cape May which will hopefully be plentiful. Flycatchers, tanagers, thrushes, grosbeaks, orioles, and swallows may be abundant as well. We will also visit the beaches. They can be host to gulls, terns, gannets and shorebirds.

Places to stay on the island include camping on Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, staying at the Buccaneer Inn or renting a home on the island. If you would like to attend, please contact our field trip leader, Alan Ashley for more details at 229-894-2362.

Sandhill Crane, Little Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, Cattle Egret, Wood Stork, Green Heron, Chimney Swift, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Red-eyed and Yellow-throated Vireo, Barn and Northern rough-winged Swallow, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Louisiana Waterthrush and Northern Parula are some possible birds.
