Sunday, October 21st, 8:00am - 3:00pm
LAKEFRONT BIRDING -- Antelope Island Causeway and Willard Bay
Leader: Tim Avery

This is a good time for exciting waterbirds to show up in Utah. We'll be on the lookout for such species as Red Phalarope, Bonaparte's and Sabine's Gulls, Surf Scoters, and perhaps some late migrating shorebirds. Meet at 8:00am in the SE corner of the ShopKo parking lot in Sugarhouse (near 1300 E exit from I-80). We'll go to the Causeway first, and plan on eating lunch at Willard Bay. Bring lunch and water or plan to buy at a stop en route.

Call Tim at 801-440-3035 if you plan to attend.
