Songbirds in Town

Please join Ogeechee Audubon for a field trip this Saturday, March 13, to Glennville Water Treatment facility. This man-made wetland hosts a variety of water and shore birds. In addition, early migrants from the songbird population should be in evidence. The terrain is flat and easily walked.

Gene Wilkinson, a resident of Glennville and one of the first promoters of the site as a birding venue, will be our guide. The trip is free and open to the public.

We will meet to carpool at 7:00 a.m. at the Ride-Share at I-95 and Hwy 204 . From there, we will make the one-hour drive to Glennville, with a restroom stop at the Glennville McDonalds restaurant -- there are no facilities at the plant.

Please let Field Trip Chairman Ken Ferm know if you plan to come; his cell phone is (912)-660-4115. Bring binoculars, water, snacks/lunch, insect and sun protection. A spotting scope can be put to good use if you have one.
