February Oxbow Inc. Field Trip

Early spring waterfowl migration should be in full swing by this date and they will be the primary focus of this trip. However a diverse number of other early spring migrants and seasonal species are expected and will also be seen. It’s also a great time of year to find Bald Eagles and other raptors in the Oxbow. Our trip leader, Jack Stenger is a lifelong Oxbow Inc. advocate and is an expert birder and burgeoning naturalist. He has great bird finding abilities so expectations are high. Jack plans to move around to several spots in the Oxbow area depending on accessibility and water conditions as flooding is the norm in the Oxbow at this season.

So why not shake off your cabin fever and join Jack for what should be a productive morning of wildlife viewing in the Oxbow. Aside from seeing waterfowl and other birds, mud and cold weather is also guaranteed, so dress appropriately. This is a morning trip that should end before noon. Rest rooms are available nearby. Feel free to contact Jack if you have any questions regarding the trip.

To reach the Oxbow, take I-275 to the Lawrenceburg, Indiana exit. Turn left onto U.S. 50 at the end of the exit ramp, and proceed about a hundred yards. Turn left onto an unmarked road just past the Shell station. Turn right at the “T” intersection, then left to the meeting spot at the next “T”.
