Are you looking for the first robin or bluebird of the year?  The Waterman Creek and Little Sioux River valleys are the perfect place to spot these typical summer visitors along with a variety of winter guests.  Join bird experts, Lee Schoenewe, Joe Jungers and others in a birding event hosted by the O’Brien County Conservation Board.

Meet at the Prairie Heritage Center at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 4 for a day of winter birding.  Participants will carpool to some excellent habitat areas in the valley looking for winter species.  After a short lunch break around noon, another carpooling adventure will occur as participants drive a river route for the annual Bald Eagle Survey.

Come for the morning, the afternoon, or for the whole day.  Bring a sack lunch to enjoy.  People who are interested in participating only in the survey route can join up with others around noon at the Prairie Heritage Center.  We hope to see you then!
