Guided Birding Hikes: Spring Migration 2021
Nothing in the birding world can match the intensity of spring migration! The urgency of birds pushing north, staking territories and finding mates is the starting gun of a race to raise this year's next group of youngsters. Before the trees leaf out birds can be easier to see and often are less wary as they desperately refuel and rest. When conditions are right an incredible number and variety of birds can be seen. As we always say, “Any bird is possible during migration!”
To keep everyone safe we will be limiting the number of participants to 10. This also creates a better birding experience.
Sorry, but there will be no books or binoculars available to be loaned out, nor can I pass around my ipad to show various bird field marks
Physical distancing of 6 feet and wearing of masks will also be required.
