Purple Martins on Lake Ouachita

SORRY.... All the spots are taken! 

Garland County Audubon Society has invited HSV Audubon to join them on Tuesday, July 25th to observe Purple Martins in their migratory pattern at Bird Island on Lake Ouachita. This is a breathtaking visual experience as thousands of Purple Martins swirl above the island and into the trees for the night.

Details: Meet at Lake Ouachita Visitors Center by 7:00 and pay the fee (usually less than $10 per person depending on response). The barge leaves at 7:30, and return at 9:00 pm. 

You may bring an evening picnic, soft drinks or snacks for the trip to Bird Island, approximately 30 to 45 minutes. It will be windy. The barge has a top, but no side protection.

Hope you can join us!
