Course description

Enjoy the last of the migratory birds for the year. We'll search local waterways for some of the more unusual waterfowl that migrate through the area this time of year, scan for migrating raptors in the skies above. We can also expect to see sparrows and blackbirds still migrating.  It's a time of year when the unexpected can happen.
