Beginning Birding for Adults

Learn how to identify birds by field marks, silhouette, behavior, and sound.

On the third Saturday of every month, adults can join the Naturalist and other adults interested in birding for a hike around the park in search of residents and migrants, including some rare species. In the spring, the focus will be on migrants stopping by to feed and rest on their way to their northern nesting grounds. In the summer, the concentration is on finding resident nesting birds under a full tree canopy. The fall is the time to find south-bound migrants on their way to their wintering grounds, and the best time to see the most species around Palmyra Cove. In the Winter, our focus changes to winter residents, waterfowl, and owls. 

Date: The third Saturday of every month. Check the calendar for exact dates.                                                                         Pileated woodpecker, by Kevin Manns
