Take a walk!

The last of the warbler walks is: 

Thursday, May 25 - Meet at 7:30 am
Quogue Wildlife Refuge
Leaders: Byron Young & Eileen Schwinn 
Beginning at 7:30 am, we will meet in the parking lot of the Refuge, and walk the approximately one mile loop around the Ice Pond. Various warbler-loving habitats — pine woods, open fields, and tangled understory — will be explored. In past years, this hidden gem has had Mourning Warbler, Hooded Warbler, Prothonotary Warbler, Scarlet Tanager, and even Yellow-throated Warbler, along with the expected nesting warblers and song birds! Almost guaranteed to be tick-free (the Wildlife staff makes sure the trails are wide and brush-free), this spot is a real winner! Contact Eileen at beachmed@optonline.net for more information.

Start of the summer walks for breeding birds is:

Saturday, June 3 at SoFo - Meet at 8 am
South Fork Natural History Museum
Leader: Eric Salzman, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo), Board of Directors
Cosponsored by the Eastern Long Island Audubon Society (ELIAS) and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo)
On this joint walk, expert birder, composer, and author Eric Salzman will explore the avian life of the meadow behind the South Fork Natural History Museum and the adjacent Greenbelt woodlands and wetlands. This walk will provide an opportunity to see and—especially—hear some of our locally breeding birds. The two-hour walk will be followed by a short introduction to the Eastern Long Island Audubon Society. Light refreshments will be served.
There is no charge for this event, but advance reservations are required. Please call SoFo at (631) 537-9735 for reservations and directions to the Musuem.

More information on the summer beach walks will be coming soon. 

    All levels of naturalists, including beginners, are most welcome on
    Eastern Long Island Audubon field trips. 

    Most trips are free to attend, however, sometimes the venue we are 
    visiting has a fee.

    We try to make a note of it in the notice.

​Eileen Schwinn is the Field Trip Chair.
