Our BPS Members May field trip will be to the Oceanside Maine Study Area on May 20th at 9am. The Marine Nature Study Area is a 52-acre salt marsh preserve devoted to environmental education and natural history. The Oceanside Marine Nature Study grounds are a great location to observe and photograph a variety of song birds and water fowl. There is a distance to walk from the parking lot to the various areas, several gravel or boardwalk pathways for exploring. There is never a guarantee with wildlife, but we’ l l have plenty of time on the grounds to move around and to capture the natural habitat. To date there have been more than 274 bird species calling Oceanside home! Recommended equipment: Long lens, a tripod with a Gimble head for easy movement, We’ll meet at the Parking Lot at 9am at Oceanside Marine Study Area, 500 Slice Drive, Oceanside, NY 11572. Let Elaine know if you are going!
