OAS field trip to the Marshallville Super Sod Farm

The Ocmulgee Audubon Society field trip this month was at the Marshallville Super Sod Farm. 
18 members participated and identified 47 bird species.  Checking the looks on the first picture, you can tell they were serious about birding; and Anne's smile on the second picture confess they also had fun!

Feel free to mention some of the birds seen- in the comment section- if you've been on the trip.  We'd love to hear all about it.
