We’ll meet at Hamilton Riverside Natural Area at 8:00 a.m. From there, depending on the weather and river conditions, we’ll stop at a few sites in town that have become popular with local nature enthusiasts and photographers. For those interested, we’ll end our day around noon at True West Coffee on Main Street in Hamilton, where you can get lunch if you wish, or coffee. Or both. Possibly, we’ll have some guest tour consultants. Regularly seen birds of late in this area include Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Black-crowned Night-Heron, and a number of waterfowl. It’s hard to predict what will happen given how quickly the river can change its mind and behavior and the way the weather has yo-yoed this winter. But at least we will have good coffee!
