Cave Mountain and upper Buffalo River field trip Saturday June 6, 2009

Y'all are invited to join Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society on a
field trip to Cave Mountain & the upper Buffalo River in Newton
County. Everyone is welcome & you do not need to be a member to
participate. All ages & experience levels welcome. This is mostly
stops at various places with only a little walking -- no extensive

TIME & PLACE: Saturday June 6, 2009, meet at 7 AM, intersection of
highway 21 & Cave Mountain Road where there is a bridge over the
Buffalo. Cave Mountain is south of Boxley on 21. Look at your Arkansas
map: using the intersections of Arkansas 43 & 21 as reference, the
Boxley Baptist Church is 0.5 miles south of the intersection; our
meeting point adjacent the bridge over the Buffalo is 1.2 miles south
of 21 & 43. If you are moderately late, head up Cave Mountain Road &
find us; if you are fashionably late, you may need to find us along 21
somewhere between Cave Mountain Road and the Ponca store (snacks).

Public lands in this area include the Buffalo National River, the
Upper Buffalo Wilderness, and the Ozark National Forest. There are
also private farms. What we will mainly look at are the fabulous
breeding birds -- warblers like Cerulean, Hooded, Worm-eating,
Redstart, Scarlet Tanager, Wood Thrush, etc.
