Meet trip leader Trina Anderson at the grassy parking lot next to Chapmans Pond. We will start by scanning the pond of this water treatment facility for water birds, swallows and flycatchers. Then we will hike the surrounding 1.5 miles of trail past other water features through dry oak woods and open mowed lawns seeking American Kestrel, migrating warblers, thrushes, tanagers, and buntings.
Directions: Take SW 75th St. (Tower Rd.) 3 mi. south of Newberry Rd. (or 1.2 mi. north of Archer Rd.) to SW 41 Pl at the corner of Veterans Memorial Park. Go east just over 1/2 mile where the road curves and joins 63rd Blvd. and the parking lot will be on the left.
Difficulty: 2. (may involve uneven terrain one to two miles).
