Columbus Audubon

Audubon in Central Ohio since 1913


Avid Birders Schedule: 2012 - 2013

Here are the Saturday dates for Avid Birders outings for the coming year. The destinations will in most cases be decided a day or two ahead of time to take advantage of the best birding possibilities. Members on our email list will get notifications of the plans by the preceding Thursday whenever possible. Unusual outings—ones that may require a night spent away, travel outside Ohio, or extra expenses, etc.—will be announced well in advance via email notices. If you want to be included on the email list, please send an email to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

All trips depart at 5:30 am with carpooling from the southeast corner of the Worthington Mall parking lot. (Worthington Mall is located on the northwest corner of High Street and Wilson Bridge Road, just south of I-270.)  Return times vary with the destination and season, but yuou can assume that we will spend most of the day birding and traveling. We usually stop at a fast food spot on the way to our first destination. Bring a sack lunch, water, and snacks as needed for sustenance during the day. Please reimburse your driver for travel expenses. Dress appropriately; remember that the weather to our north, particularly along the windy Lake Erie shore, often is a lot colder than that in Columbus.
