Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CST on Friday, January 21st, and space is limited. Visit alaudubon.org/event/2022-01-22 for more information and to register.

The deep waters of Guntersville Lake and the Guntersville waterfront are excellent places to search for waterfowl in winter. We will also be hoping to find nesting bald eagles along our birding route down Sunset Drive and the AL Hwy 69 causeway.

The details: Meetup is at 7 a.m. in the parking lot of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens (2612 Lane Park Road, Birmingham). We will reconvene at the Guntersville McDonald’s (1745 Gunter Ave) at 8:30 a.m. for anyone meeting us there.

Be sure to bring the usual supplies: binoculars, water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellant, rain gear, and seasonally appropriate attire. In the case of inclement weather, the event may be cancelled. You may contact the trip leader the morning of the event if the weather is questionable.

Registration: To register, visit alaudubon.org/event/2022-01-22.

Accessibility: Wheelchair accessible. Little walking will be involved as Sunset Drive has convenient parking at each stop along our route.

The food: Bring a picnic lunch, and we will plan to eat along the waterfront.

The birds: We expect to see lots of waterfowl, diving ducks, loons, bald eagles, and even some gulls.
