Field Trip – Beginner Birding in the Slate Valley with Monika Holenstein

Neebing Roadhouse 2121 Highway 61, Thunder Bay

Join us for a relaxed morning of birding in the beautiful Slate River Valley.  No experience or expertise needed.  We will drive the back roads looking for some of the more common spring birds - Bobolinks, Bluebirds, Sandhill Cranes as well as a variety of warblers and sparrows.  The morning will consist of roadside stops and sharing tips on bird identification by both song and appearance.  We plan to finish off the morning at the Bakeshop on Boundary for a pastry (bring your own thermos of coffee or drink of preference).  Dress warmly (in layers).  Binoculars recommended. Limit 20 people.  Meet at 8 am at the parking lot for the Neebing Roadhouse on Highway 61.  Car pooling can be arranged from there.  Please contact Monika at holensmo@yahoo.com to register.
