This patch of woodland surrounding a seasonal lake is ideal for hearing and seeing a number of resident songbirds, such as Song Sparrow, Bewick’s Wren, Spotted Towhee, Red-winged Blackbird, American Robin, Black-capped Chickadee and more. You’ll learn to open up your ears to the voices around you and come away with a new appreciation for the sounds birds make and how to use this skill, not only to identify the singer but to understand what their voices can tell us.
The dirt trail is flat, and we probably won’t cover a lot of distance, but you’ll be on your feet the whole time. Dress in layers for a chilly morning. If rain is not in the forecast, please do not wear a nylon raincoat that will make noise when you walk.
Tuition: $35 - $55 sliding scale (plus processing fees)
