Katy Prairie Conservancy presents Unplugged Adventure: Coming Home to Roost
Each winter, the Katy Prairie becomes home to flocks of birds fleeing cooler climates for the season. John Berner and Steve Gast, local birding enthusiasts, will guide guests to see one of the most charismatic of these species, the sandhill crane, come in to roost on the prairie for the evening.
Participants also will see waterfowl and other birds moving to their nighttime roosts. The cranes sometimes shift their roost sites a bit, so the guides will be scouting within a few days of the field trip to determine a good viewing location. Depending on where that is, there will be a bit of driving over field roads, but not rough ones. Bring binoculars and camera and dress in camouflage or dark colors; a spotting scope could be helpful.
