  1. Hello, I was wondering if there will be a field trip to see the burrowing owls this summer at Watermelon Pond? Or is it possible to locate them outside a field trip?
    Thank you,

    • We’ll be holding our annual Burrowing Owl field trip on June 3rd this year. We’ll meet at Watermelon Pond at 7:30 a.m. and the county biologists will escort us across the fields to the owl colony. If you watch the “Birding Reports” on this web site ( http://www.alachuaaudubon.org/bird-reports/ ), or follow the Alachua Audubon Society Facebook page, you’ll see the announcement.

  2. Unable to move the calendar past January. Any suggestions?

  3. Good morning,
    I’m an old eHoosier Snowbird –
    We used to stay near Trenton but in-laws moves to Tampa area, so……
    MAIN reason for writing – while at Trenton I found a copy of Mr Rowan’s &Mr Manetz‘s
    “A Birdwatcher’s Guide to Alachua County”
    I would like to opine that it’s the Best, most complete, thorough, organized and easy to follow Guide of this type I’ve yet to find!!
    SECOND reason for writing – I’ve been rereading parts of said Guide and wonder
    “Are the Bachmans still GUARANTEED at Longleaf Flatwoods Reserve?????”
    Thanks – for the guide and a “very likely” is sufficient
