Columbia Audubon Society Albert Children’s Wildlife Area
We will leave Patricia’s Foods parking lot at 10:00 a.m. Here’s your chance to bird a high-quality but rarely visited Audubon Nature Area. The Albert area is located about a 15-minute drive northeast of Columbia on the Boone/Calloway county line. Our property (about 80 acres) is part of a larger tract that has been extensively reclaimed after a history of coal strip-mining. Reclamation has left a great mixture of habitats, including a grassland-shrubland-wetland complex along Cedar Creek. Target birds will include late-migrant grassland birds, such as Nelson's and LeConte's Sparrows, which haven’t been seen here yet so it will be fun trying to increase the species list for this area.
Check out the CAS website at for more information on the area http://columbia-audubon.org/
We’ll carpool to the area, because vehicle access is limited. Most birding will be on foot, on and off trails, so come prepared for wet ground and insect pests. The group should be back at Patricia’s Foods by 1 and 2 p.m.
