"Changing of the Guard at
with Esa Jarvi
by John Carlini, Field Trip Chair
Late autumn birding offers an element of surprise as summer's breeding birds switch places with winter visitors and migrants. Esa Jarvi will lead November's field trip on a search of Pioneers Park to look for whatever birds we can find in the open areas and the edges of fields. A walk around the ponds may yield more sparrows. Meet at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 9, at Pioneers Park Nature Center parking lot. The park is located in Lincoln just southwest of West Van Dorn Street and South Coddington Avenue. Wear shoes that can stand some moisture. This outing is free and open to the public. If you have questions call Esa at 402-440-6357.
