La Chua Trail field trip
January 2017
The brisk, beautiful January morning was a perfect day for checking out the record numbers of sandhill cranes who have been visiting Paynes Prairie this winter. In addition to the impressive crowds of cranes our field trip participants enjoyed seeing an interesting variety of avian species, including several Wilson’s Snipes, Long-billed Dowitchers, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs (conveniently near each other for field mark comparisons), Blue- and Green-winged Teal, Savannah Sparrow, Cooper’s Hawk and even a Dickcissel, rare in this area. Fifty-two species were recorded. A large contingent of the bison herd was also in view.
