  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?
