Meet Rex Rowan in the parking corral of the Longleaf Flatwoods Reserve (on CR-325 2.3 miles south of Hawthorne Rd.) to kick off The June Challenge. We’ll try to find Common Nighthawk and Bachman’s Sparrow at Longleaf. Next we’ll go to Windsor to scope Newnans Lake for Bald Eagles and Laughing Gulls. Our last stop will be Sweetwater Wetlands Park ($5 per vehicle entry fee) to search for Bobolink, King Rail, Least Bittern, and Purple Gallinule. We’ll be done by lunchtime with 40-50 species on our June Challenge lists.
