Join us as we tour the Grand Central Landfill in Pen Argyl in search of “trash birds” such as crows, ravens, gulls, vultures and eagles. We’ll also look for songbirds and raptors that utilize the grassland habitat there. Some of the species we hope to see include Common Raven, Lesser Black-backed and Iceland Gulls, and Bald Eagle. Participants should dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes (that can get dirty) and bring binoculars. To register, contact Rick Wiltraut at email@example.com or 610-746-2810.
