November 9th, Antelope Island

The Antelope Island Causeway is one of the best places in the state to find rare ducks, shorebirds, and gulls. On the island itself we will look for other winter specialties like Rough-legged Hawks and Merlins. If time and interest allow, we will continue to Garr Ranch at the south end of the island to look for songbirds. On previous year’s trips, we have found rarities including Varied Thrush, Black-legged Kittiwake, Harlequin Duck, White-winged and Black Scoters, and Red Phalarope. Meet at the parking lot in front of Cafe Ibis (50E, 150N, Logan) at 7:30 AM; we will carpool from there. Bring a snack or lunch and a few dollars to help cover the cost of the drivers’ gas and the $9 per vehicle entrance fee. We’ll plan on returning to Logan in the late afternoon.
