Yellow-Breasted Chat, from Backyard Birds

Join John Sproul for birding at the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park. This wildlife refuge within El Paso’s city limits abounds with bird life:  249 different species have been recorded to date.  In late April and early May, spring migration is at its peak.  Encounter a nice mix of permanent resident birds, spring migrants and early-arriving summer residents.  Bring water, sunscreen, insect repellent and binoculars.  This field trip will last 2 hours.  Meet at Riverside Canal bridge.  From 1‑10, take Americas Avenue/Loop 375 south to Pan American, turn left and travel 1.5 miles to the bridge.  For more information, contact John Sproul, 915-747-8663 or jsproul@utep.edu.
