November 8th, Saturday, 2014 Field Trip
Vancouver Lake Lowlands
Time: 8:00 AM

                     Leader:  Susan Setterberg,  856-701-2542 cell
                                            email:  smsetterberg@yahoo.com
                     Time: 8:00 AM  until 11 AM or later
                     Meet at: Vancouver Lake Parking Lot in front of the south most 
                                    bathrooms to the right of the entrance.

To get there, from I-5, take Exit 1-D, Fourth Plain Blvd, SR-501. Go west on Fourth Plain through Vancouver continuing onto Lower River Rd. After 3.5 miles on SR-501, continue straight for 0.6 miles to Vancouver Lake Park on your right.  

We will be walking the park area & trails looking for wintering waterfowl & passerines.  Time and weather permitting, we will try Frenchman痴 Bar along the Columbia River and then check out the sewer treatment ponds in the area.  Sparrows and other wintering birds inhabit the brush and trees in the park.  There should be a variety of geese and ducks to sort through on the water.  And, oh yes, those confusing winter gulls will challenge us.  
Be prepared with wet weather gear & appropriate footwear.  Most birding will be along easy, flat trails or road side. The lake loop is about a mile around. Those who wish to continue on to other sites in the lowlands, beside the Vancouver Lake Park, may wish to bring along a sandwich or snacks as the birding could extend into the early afternoon.  Water is always advised. 
                     We will carpool.       Do not forget to pay your driver for gas.
