Audubon International is sponsoring a Golf Course BioBlitz in order to demonstrate the large diversity of species that call golf courses home. Let’s help the Logan River Golf Course have a strong showing on this field trip, where we’ll be likely to observe many Neotropical migrants just as they arrive in Logan—Yellow Warblers, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Western Tanagers, Lazuli Buntings, and Bullock’s Orioles are among the most colorful. Meet at Caffe Ibis at 8 AM, with the option to carpool to the golf course and back.
Additionally, any time you are birding at the LRGC between April 22nd and May 14th this year, enter your sightings into eBird and they’ll be counted!
