Thread: Birding at the Beds (VCDB)

  1. #1

    Default Birding at the Beds (VCDB)

    ** Jim Sipiora will be unable to lead a birding walk in the month of January 2017 so this is cancelled for that month only. **

    Birding at the Beds - Dunlop Sports Center and the Village Creek Drying Beds (VCDB)

    Where: Meet in the parking lot of the Dunlop Sports Center on the south side of Green Oaks Blvd. between Davis Dr. and Fielder Rd. in Arlington, across from the entrance to Village Creek Drying Beds.

    When: Recurring the 2nd Wednesday of every month

    Time: From October - May, start birding at Dunlop Sports Center at 7:15 a.m., then bird VCDB from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (come to one or both); from June - September, meet at Dunlop at 6:30 a.m., but start birding VCDB immediately (and exclusively) until approximately 9:00 a.m. (Summer "beat-the-heat" hours)

    Leader: Jim Sipiora

    Description: After meeting in the Dunlop Sports Center parking lot** we will bird that park first (except Summer schedule as listed above), then walk across the street to VCDB. This field trip will be great for beginning birders to observe and document what birds are visiting the beds during each season. Birding will be done by foot, but it will be easy walking. Please be prepared for the current weather conditions. Potential hazards include mud, fallen trees, mosquitoes, and poison ivy. Water is always good to have with you, and possibly insect repellent and sunscreen depending on conditions.

    ** Make sure all valuables in your vehicle are placed out of sight PRIOR to arriving at the parking lot.
