Event description:

Join local wildlife ecologist and artist Steve Sanford and ASA on Tuesday, May 29 for a bird walk at the conserved White Oak Farm in Buskirk. The walk is for beginner and expert birders alike.

 

Bird Painting by Steve SanfordThe walk will begin at 5:30 am and stroll through farm fields and woods to a large beaver pond. Steve will arrive at 4:30 am, so anyone wanting to hear owls or other early sounds can assemble earlier. We expect to see and hear scores of breeding birds including Meadowlarks and Bobolinks and some of the later migrants.

 

No special footwear is necessary but participants should bring binoculars and shoes or boots that could stand some morning dew. We will meet at 5 Eddy Road and walk, watch and listen for about 2 hours.
