Field Trip: Bayard Conservation Area (Green Cove Springs)

October 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Leader: Pete Johnson, (904-536-4806)

Bayard’s mixed habitat and proximity to the St. Johns River will allow us to observe and record a great variety of bird species including migrant songbirds, waders, raptors, woodpeckers, and owls. This trip coincides with peak thrush migration, so species like Veery, Swainson’s and Gray-cheeked Thrush are possible. Other target species include Eastern Wood-Pewee and Bachman’s Sparrow.

Bring binoculars, drinks, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, sturdy walking shoes, and a hat if desired.

Location – 485 FL-16, Green Cove Springs, FL 32043
Meet in the parking lot at Gate #BC05, about 1/2 mile west of Shands Bridge on FL-16. No fee.
