Jim Coe, a local bird expert, artist and Greene Land Trust Board member will lead a morning bird walk at the Octaparagon Preserve on Sunday, April 23rd at 8:30 am (rain date is April 30th at 8:30 am).
We hope to see colorful songbirds returning from the Neotropics for the nesting season (gnatcatchers, warblers, orioles, and perhaps an early tanager), as well as some of our familiar year-round favorites (towhees, waxwings, Bald Eagle, Red-shouldered Hawk) – in addition to early woodland wildflowers, trees in flower, and whatever else crosses our path. Participants will be introduced to bird identification techniques, field guides and apps. If you own binoculars, please bring them. For those that don’t, we will have binoculars available for you to use during the walk.
The event is limited to 20 participants ages 8 and up. Cost is $10 (plus a $2.51 registration fee).
