Field Trip to Delta Rivers Nature Center, Pine Bluff Water Treatment Ponds, and Cane Creek State Park 3/14/2009

Samantha, Angie, and I joined an ASCA field trip to Delta Rivers Nature Center, Pine Bluff Water Treatment Ponds, and Cane Creek State Park on March 14. This was an all day event and we got home just in time for Sam and me to scarf down some dinner and head for a CAAS meeting. Once everything was tallied, Samantha got about 12 official life birds (official cause she’s seen more that we’ve got recorded in eBird) and much to my later surprise, I got one life bird – Eared Grebe.
