Looking for Sparrows

Late September and early October feature a good variety of sparrows, some residents, some newly arrived from the north. We will search for as many as we can find, in addition to other fall migrants. Prepare for some wet feet (from dew or standing water)! Meet at the junction of Krause and Stange Roads on the west side of Ottawa NWR at 8:00 AM. Leader Tom Kemp with do his best to help the group find these “little brown birds.”
