Birdwatching at Lake Guntersville Lake Guntersville & Surrounding Area Saturday, February 4th, 7:00 a.m. Lake Guntersville is one of the premier birding sites in the state for observing waterfowl and raptors in winter. During the morning we will make several stops around Guntersville Lake to view ducks, grebes, gulls, coots, cormorants and other water birds. If we are lucky to have good sunshine, you can enjoy some amazing colors and plumage patterns of ducks up close with a scope. We will enjoy a picnic lunch along the Guntersville waterfront. Following lunch we will have a couple of birding options available to us: a trip to Guntersville lock and dam, where nesting Bald Eagles are certain to be crowd pleasers. As of this writing we are also trying to arrange a visit to the adjacent “Hawk Farm,” which has hosted a variety of interesting raptors in recent years. A visit to the state park will provide an up close view of the damage and subsequent recovery from the April tornadoes that ripped through Alabama. Trip leaders: Ty Keith (602- 8037) and Susan Barrow (253-8667). 7am Sat. | Free. Meet at Birmingham Botanical Gardens.2612 Lane Park Road Birmingham, AL 35223, 35223
