April 2014 Field Trip

C. J. Goin will lead this field trip to an area of the park that is closed to the public, so it should be particularly good for birding.  Sharp-shinned Hawk, Blue-headed Vireo, various sparrows, warblers and other avian life are some of the sightings we’ve had in the past.  Meet at 7:15am in the SW corner (closest to Border Patrol Station) of the parking lot at Lowe’s Home Improvement on N. Main to leave at 7:30am.  Carpooling can be arranged beforehand or on the spot.  Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes, a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen are also an excellent idea.  Bring plenty of water and a snack or two.  We should be back in Las Cruces by early afternoon.  For information, contact Mark Pendleton at mpndltn@gmail.com or 575-635-8711.
