Carpool leaves Patricia's Foods at 8am. Amber Edwards, Education Coordinator, is meeting the group at Prairie Fork at 9 am. Located in eastern Calloway County, it is used for educational experiences in topics including forestry and soils. It has been managed in close cooperation with the University of Missouri and Prairie Fork Trust and much effort has been made to restore parts of this 711 acre area to the natural prairie/savanna habitat that once graced this region of Missouri.

We will leave the visitor center’s parking lot at 8:00 a.m. by foot and explore Bradford Farms. This trip will be focused on finding LeConte's and Nelson's Sparrow, other species will be sought after as well. Wear your tallest waterproof boots, if you want, as we will go through some shallow water areas in hopes of flushing Rails and Marsh and Sedge Wrens while looking for sparrows. Expect lots of slow walking and many bird species! We will return to the parking lot around noon.

The Big Sit And Possibly The Swallow Gathering.
We will join the Grand River Audubon Society for ‘The Big Sit’ on the observation deck at Swan Lake NWR, this entails participants sitting in a circle with a 17 ft. radius facing outward, that way we have a 360° vantage point. The goal is to see as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period; this does not mean we all have to be there for 24 hours. GRAS will have a BBQ going for lunch so please bring a side for the pot luck.
If the Swallow Gathering is on another day we will have a separate field trip with a choice of having dinner at a Bed and Breakfast nearby, it will be very short notice -FYI.
