FENCE offers guided bird walk on August 10

Published 5:37 pm Thursday, August 3, 2017

Though August is a summer month, it is the start of the fall migration for many of our local birds. Many of our summer bird residents are still around at this time of year, perhaps still singing, while certain species such as Barn Swallow and Purple Martin have largely gone. The first of many southbound songbird migrants are just beginning to trickle through.

Join international bird guide, Aaron Steed, for a walk through the woodlands around FENCE and search for a variety of warblers, tanagers, sparrows and more. The event will take place Thursday, Aug 10 at 8 a.m.

This event is free and open to the public. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a water bottle. Guests are welcome and encouraged to bring binoculars and bird guides along for this walk as well.
