Event description
Join us for a field trip in the beautiful Rouge Park!

About this Event

Join co-leaders Leonard Weber and Peggy Dankert to explore the beautiful Rouge Park! We will check out the Great Blue Herons rookery which also may have occasional appearances of egrets and Bald Eagles and perhaps a raptor or two overhead. Previous years we’ve seen Great Horned Owls and Red-tailed Hawks stealing a nesting site which makes for an interesting dynamic.

We will also visit the marsh, where there are so many birds to see from geese, Mallards, sandpipers, kingfishers, Egrets, Black-crowned Night Herons, nesting Wood Ducks, Green Herons and last year a nesting Hooded Merganser. Plus occasional migrant ducks stop by for a day or two. The park is home to many swallows, killdeer, turkeys, Turkey Vultures and the usual assorted birds plus deer, coyotes, muskrats, turtles, frogs, snakes, fish, dragon and damselflies, butterflies, etc.

When selecting footwear be prepared for some mud. Bring a chair if you wish.
