The Herndon Bird Club will have an AFTERNOON field trip tomorrow, Saturday, August 30, to Rankin Bottoms for shore birds. Meet at the Johnson City K-Mart at 2:30 p.m. to car pool to Rankin Bottoms. The field trip is held in the afternoon to take advantage of the sunlight direction at that time of day.
Binoculars and spotting scopes will be important and several club members will have scopes that they will share. We will eat at a selected restaurant on the way home and will get back to Johnson City after dark. The water level at Douglas Lake is down to 984.4 ft. and should be slightly lower by tomorrow. Several birders have reported good lists of shorebirds in the past week, and viewing opportunities may even improve slightly if the water level drops even more by tomorrow. At this time, the weather prediction for Saturday is "partly cloudy with a 0% chance of rain, high temperature of 88 F"
If you have any questions about the field trip, please send me email or feel free to call me.
