This week's destination: 8/5

Hey Thursday birders! I don't think we've ever gone to Lewis A Swyer Preserve in Columbia Co before. It's a 1/2 mile boardwalk along a freshwater tidal wetland feeding into the Hudson. Parking is along 9J *exactly* where the GPS point is dropped, about 500 feet north of the actual start of the trail. If you go under an old RR trestle, you've gone a bit too far south. Meet at 8:00am

If people want we could then go 5 miles further south and check out Nutten Hook, where we will have a HMBC field trip on Sept 25. Tide permitting, we might be able to get to the riverside.
