Lansing (Iowa) Loop

Lansing (Iowa) Loop Saturday March 13, 2010 Fred Lesher will lead two “Lansing Loop” field trips. March 13 is the Tristate trip with the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology and Coulee Region Audubon Society. Meet at 9 AM at the La Crescent Kwik Trip at the stoplight in La Crescent. March 27 is the same trip with Wisconsin Society of Ornithology, with the same meeting place and time. These trips take 5-6 hours with a stop for lunch in Lansing, Iowa.Early waterfowl migrants are expected, plus end of winter/early migrant Bald Eagles, often in numbers over 100. Early Eastern Bluebirds are possible, as well as the first Eastern Phoebes. Tundra Swans are possible, but their spring migration is often hard to see. They are in a big hurry on their 2500+/- miles migration from Chesapeake Bay to extreme NW Canada and are here and gone within 2-3 days.
