Upcoming Weekend Field Trip

Seney NWR
July 14-16 (Friday - Sunday)  Leader: Don Burlett
This trip is to the UP for general birding and to find a Black-backed Woodpecker.  We will be staying near Newberry, MI while we travel the area to find the woodpecker.  We also plan to visit Seney NWR for general birding, which typically has loons, rails, etc.  We’ll drive up Friday and spend part of Saturday in search, returning home on Sunday. 
Be prepared for any weather and for bugs.  Carpooling will be encouraged. 
Also, reserve your rooms early. For more details please click HERE.
