FOOTHILLS – Early March is a great time to get out and go birding at FENCE. Winter visitors, such as the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and White-throated Sparrow, will be migrating north soon. This will be a good opportunity to get some end-of-winter birding in, and perhaps welcome an early spring migrant such as Tree Swallow, or Blue-headed Vireo.  

Join Kevin Burke, Ventures Birding Guide, at 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 2 for a fun two-hour bird walk to learn about the birds of our area. This will be an easy walk on trails with gentle hills.

Birders of all skill levels are welcome to join, from beginners to more advanced. Attendees should wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and bring along binoculars or bird guides if they have them.
