David and Rochelle hosted this multi location field trip on Sunday 24, 2019.
Some of the group met at 7:00 AM at the Fellsmere Grade Recreation Area parking lot. This lot is located adjacent to TM Goodwin and the Stick Marsh. After 2 hours of birding and chat we relocated to the St. Sebastien River Preserve State Park Welcome Center, where we met additional birders. Later we drove to the Manatee Observation Area in the state park. Around 11:30 the hungry birders drove to the Marsh Landing Restaurant in Fellsmere for a specially prepared buffet and gift exchange. This event had 24 birders participant in some or all of the activities.
