Outing notes: Dress in seasonal and comfortable clothing, and consider wearing layers, as well. Please consider packing winter boots, perhaps even rubber boots, ice grippers (if you own them), hand & foot warmers, extra socks, coffee/tea, snacks, water, and sunscreen. It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the region in which we will be birding to help you decide on what to wear for the trip!
