Wed. Bird Walk: Migration Mania
Get ready for the greatest show on earth: spring migration! This year, we’re ramping things up with a full morning of birding at River Preserve’s best migration-magnet hotspots. All flavors of spring migrants can be expected this time of year here, including tanagers, vireos, and warblers. With luck, we’ll find over 60 species – all before lunch!
We’ll get an early start at 7:30 at the Benton Spillway, then speed-bird our way through the preserve with short site-to-site carpooling and hikes. The exact route and pacing will be up to the discretion of the leaders based on target species and bird activity, so be ready to move at peregrine speed! NOTE – As one of our most popular hikes of the year, please plan travel time accordingly — the group will head out at 7:30 a.m. sharp.
What to Expect: Come ready to speed-bird in a series of site-to-site hikes.
Suggested Gear: Hiking boots and weather-ready layers.
Meet at: Benton Spillway in River Preserve County Park, located 1 mile south of U.S. 33 on C.R. 31. in Goshen (Directions here).
