San Joaquin Audubon Begins FYI Field Trips--Oct 29
JOIN SAN JOAQUIN AUDUBON FOR A NEW KIND OF FIELD TRIP: “DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) FIELD TRIP”
Here’s how it works:
· SESSION I (Virtual) (Thursday, October 29) A Zoom meeting with the field trip leader. For this first time out, Pat Paternostro will introduce a local birding site—Lodi Lake Nature Area—and the birds you’re likely to see there, such as Wood Duck, Hermit Thrush, Coopers Hawk, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Fox Sparrow and Yellow-rumped Warbler. (Birders of all levels are welcome).
· SESSION 1+ is the DIY part: before the next Zoom meeting, you visit the birding location, where you’ll look for the listed birds and other wildlife. Take binoculars and a bird field guide if you have them and keep a list of your observations. Please follow all COVID-19 precautions when you are in the field: wearing masks, observing social distancing and hand washing.
· SESSION 2 (Virtual) Usually the third week after the first meeting, participants join again on Zoom, sharing what they found, and there will be an introduction to the next DIY field trip location.
