Grassland Birds Highlight of Walk
Have you ever seen a burble of Bobolinks?  A harrier hover?  The flight of a falcon?  These are just a few of the birds you’ll encounter on a guided walk through the fields and meadows of the Washington County Grasslands IBA (Important Bird Area). 
 
Join Friends of the IBA (FIBA) Executive Director Laurie LaFond on Saturday, June 16, to see the birds at the peak of breeding season - including some of NY’s rarest species!  Dozens of Bobolinks, Savannah sparrows, Eastern meadowlarks, American kestrels and more highlight this private walk on 64 acres of prime wildlife habitat FIBA is working to purchase.

For those who just can’t get enough of this breeding bird bounty we’ll visit NYS DEC’s Wildlife Management Area (WMA) after if time allows.
 
FIBA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust conserving critical habitat for New York’s endangered, threatened and rapidly declining grassland birds.  Your support helps ensure they do NOT disappear from New York State!  
 
Meeting Time: 7:30 a.m.  FEE of $10 of individuals, $20 for families includes a discounted one-year membership to FIBA - visit www.ibafriends.org for details; Free to Members.  Call FIBA's office at (518) 499-0012 to register.
