The field trip to Shiawasee National Wildlife Refuge followed by a tasty lunch at the Savoy in Saginaw on Thursday, July 23, 2015 was greatly enjoyed by the four AVA members Larry, Sue, Eugenia and Kathy.
A total of 27 bird species were identified, along with a few mammals. A few unknowns were also spotted: duck and sparrow species. Of particular enjoyment were the abundant Great Egret and Great Blue Heron. A surprise sighting was also in store near the auto drive tour end. This bird was about 30 feet up! Amazingly fun ending to an interesting drive.
