April 2018 Field Trip

Saturday, April 21, 2018

Mark this date for a visit to Percha Dam State Park, one of New Mexico’s better birding spots, 45 minutes from Las Cruces on I-25.  The group will leave at 7:15am from the old K-Mart parking lot (NE corner next to the gas station) off of Hwy 70.  Bring a NM State Parks day pass if you have one.  Carpooling will be available.  Some of the wildlife highlights observed at Percha are Osprey, Vermilion Flycatcher and Eastern Phoebe.  Unusual sightings in the past have included Great Kiskadee and Carolina Wren.  Contact Mark Pendleton for all trips (575-635-8700/mpndlt@gmail.com).
