Field trip Saturday, June 5, 2010, open to all interested in birds in Buffalo River area

The next field trip sponsored by Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society will occur on Saturday June 5, 2010. Meeting time is 8 AM. Meeting place is at the Buffalo River bridge, intersection of highway 21 and Cave Mountain Road, in Newton County. You can see this place just south of Boxley in Newton County, on the state highway map. We will make a leisurely exploration of Cave Mountain’s many bird treasures: Cerulean Warbler, Hooded Warbler, American Redstart, etc. Then down to the Boxley millpond, Lost Valley (?), Ponca lowwater bridge, Elk Education Center grounds at Ponca, etc. 

You can get an idea of what this trip is like here: (trip 5, upper Buffalo). 

While none of this is what I’d call “wheel chair accessible” it will be very leisurely – there’s no hardcore hiking, you can bird at or near your car, and you can leave whenever you get a bellyful. –Joe Neal (479-521-1858)
