Time: 7:00-9:00 AM

Location TBD

The birds are back in town! Grab your binoculars, and we will join Al Sgroi for a few hours of bird watching. Al will also help us work on identifying what we see and hear.

This is a great time to get up early and go bird watching, as, according to BirdCast, more than 1.8 million birds crossed Middlesex County after sunset on May 15 last year, making this peak spring migration time. Visit the site linked above regularly to check out what types of birds you might expect to see daily.

Downloading the Merlin Bird ID phone app by Cornell Bird Labs is also recommended. This app helps identify birds by color, size and behavior. It also has Sound ID, which listens to the birds around you and shows real-time suggestions for who’s singing. During our walk we will use this app to help us identify the birds we hear, and know what to look for.

You don’t have to be an expert to join us! This is a walk for all levels of birders, experienced to beginner, but no pets are allowed at this event. We will walk 1-2 miles on various surface trails. Bring your binoculars, water, sun protection and bug repellent. Some loaner binoculars will be available.

Registration limited to 25 people. Location will be emailed to you a few days before the event.
