Three Loon Tours Scheduled by Hobbs State Park and the Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society


By popular demand, it’s on again.  Hobbs State Park has teamed up with the Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society to offer three memorable loon migration cruises on Beaver Lake.  Each cruise will be led by guides well experienced with waterfowl migration.

During October 27th, November 3rd and November 11th, the waterfowl migration will be in full swing. According to Joe Neal, co-author (With Doug James) of the book, “Arkansas Birds”, “I expect there will be MANY bird species to see and identify on these cruises. Besides Common Loons, we could also see Red-Throated Loons. I expect we will see both Pied-Billed and Horned Grebes. Western and Eared Grebes are also possible. These trips fall right in the middle of waterfowl migration, and I expect we will see 10 or more species of ducks. We may see 1-3 gull species. Bald Eagles should be visible too. We will explore a loop that starts at Rocky Branch, goes down the lake towards Twin Cove, crosses to Lost Bridge-Glade and a little further west, then finish the loop back to Rocky Branch.”
