This week's destination: 11/17 and some notes
Hey Thursday birders! Tomorrow looks like as nice a day as we're likely to get in November, so I hate to waste it driving around - but everywhere is a swamp, so...? Let's try the Zim Smith Trail, starting from the Coons Crossing Rd trailhead off Rt 67 at 8:00am.
No Thursday group next week on Thanksgiving, of course. When we pick back up in December, we'll switch to winter hours and meet at 9:00am, allowing more time to clear the roads and our cars.
Nancy Kern spotted the first Short-eared Owl of the season on CR 21 in Schodack Landing last night - I know where I'll be tonight!
