Early Morning Birding Walk
29 May
Early Morning Birding Walk
Date: May 29, 2019
Time: 5:30 am - 7:30 am
Place: White Oak Farm
Address: 5 Eddy Road, Buskirk

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

The 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.

Group size is limited to 20 people so please register in advance. In the event of heavy rains on May 29th, the walk will be rescheduled to Wednesday, June 5.
