Summary:
Spring is here and the leaves are just buds! This is a great time for a walk in the early morning and do some birding. Come join us for a feathered adventure. No experience necessary!
Detailed Description:

April is the time of year when the Red-tail hawk has built its nest and is now sitting on a clutch of 1-4 eggs.  These are some of the earliest breeders.  Others like the Red-winged blackbird are just arriving from their wintering grounds and staking out territory.  The quiet of winter mornings is now replaced with the songs of courting and some territorial arguments.  Come join us as we take a walk through the woodland looking for and listening to the the sights and sounds of spring.

To join us does not require a PhD in Ornithology or any experience at all.  Just a willingness to explore and learn about our feathered neighbors. 

All Ages Welcome

What to bring:  Don't have binoculars?  We will bring them for you.  Bad as using them?  We'll help you get pretty good at it.  Wear comfortable boots and dress for the weather.
