Fall Migration Field Trip to Saddle Creek Park, Polk County

Rose-breasted Grosbeak

October 11, 2020, Sunday – 8:00AM-11:00AM

Cost: $20.00 per person – 4 person minimum – 8 person maximum

Join us this October for a fall migration field trip to Saddle Creek Park. The park is a known hotspot for fall songbird migration, as the birds returning to the tropics for the winter pass through Florida. This field trip will require about 2 miles of hiking, while stopping regularly to observe or photograph birds or wildlife. The list of species we’re expecting to see includes Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Scarlet Tanager, Indigo Bunting, American Redstart, Black-throated Blue, Tennessee, and Magnolia Warblers, Ovenbird, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Barred Owl, and Pileated Woodpecker. We may also see water birds such as Wood Stork, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Mottled Duck, or Belted Kingfisher. Even the rare Golden-winged Warbler has been observed on this property in the past, so we never know what may turn up. Price for this field trip will be $20 per person with a minimum of 4 participants. Meet at 3716 Morgan Combee Rd, Lakeland, FL 33801 by 8am on 10/11/2020.
