Birding by Ear
May 27 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am

 

Bird migration continues with some of the last arrivals.  Learn to bird by ear.  Search for warblers, vireos, flycatchers, thrushes, and other songbirds using your sense of hearing, rather than eyesight.  Bird calls and songs will be the focus.  Bring your binoculars along if you want to.  Ages: adults and children 7 and up.  Meet in parking lot #2 by the kiosk.  Pre-registration is required.
