[TN-Bird] CTOS Field Trip

The Chattanooga TOS chapter is sponsoring a field trip.
From the newsletter

SAT., MARCH 10: PINKY'S POINT 

TO VIEW OSPREYS AND THEIR NEST

MEET: 7:45AM AT CHESTER FROST PARK BOAT

RAMP IF YOU WANT TO CAR POOL/CARAVAN,

LEADER: BOB EDENS (423) 991-3196 FOR INFO.

 

Now that a pair of Osprey have come back to our area,

we'll be watching the Osprey nesting platform in the

middle of the river and looking for woodpeckers and

other birds in the immediate area. Bald Eagles can

sometimes be seen here too. Anyone who wishes to move

from the viewing area can walk the dirt and gravel roads

of the point and find many sparrow species, hermit

thrushes and other resident and migrant species.

 

DIRECTIONS TO PINKY'S POINT: Take Hixson Pike

north, following signs to Chester Frost Park. Drive

through Chester Frost Park (unless you are meeting us at

the boat ramp on the left side of the road). Continue over

the next hill and you'll eventually see a slough off the

lake on your left. Take the first road to the left after

you pass this slough (Nelson Spur Rd.) and that road will

dead-end at the gates to Pinky's Point. Go through gates,

and turn left when you get half way to the bottom of the hill. 

Look for birders' cars to find the Osprey viewing area.
