FIELD OUTING Wheeling for Waterfowl
Sunday, March 29, 2014, 9:00 AM Led by Jim Tomko At the La Due Reservoir
We will caravan to several favorite lakes and ponds to witness the spectacular plumage of the drakes as well as the beautiful but demure plumage of the hens while they loaf, rest, and refuel for their continued northward migration to their nesting grounds. Some species pair up on their southern wintering range so we often see courtship displays but the resplendent full breeding plumage of some of the drakes will absolutely awe you! Meet at the La Due boat ramp parking lot at the end of Washington Rd. which is a turn to the east off of St. Rt. 44 just north of the 422 interchange in Auburn.
