Field Trip to Lake Sweetwater

On Saturday morning, May 20, at 7 a.m. we will leave the parking lot at the What-a-Burger on South 1st and Pioneer to bird Lake Sweetwater and surrounding areas in Nolan County.  Those wishing to eat breakfast should come earlier.  We will carpool from the What-a-Burger. We will be looking for the summer breeders such as Bullock’s Oriole, Painted Bunting, Canyon Towhee, Dickcissel, Cassin’s Sparrow, Bell’s Vireo, Pyrrhuloxia, Curve-billed Thrasher, Verdin, Western Kingbird, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Swainson’s Hawk, and perhaps Vermilion Flycatcher.  Bring snacks, sunscreen, and plenty of water; hot weather is predicted.
