Description:    This is an easy walk on level ground, with excellent viewing opportunities for a range of passerines, typical for the time of year. There is an excellent chance for five species of sparrow, finches, Red-bellied, Downy, Hairy and sometimes Pileated Woodpecker, waterfowl, a Belted Kingfisher has overwintered here the past few years, Red-tailed Hawks roost in the park, and there is always the possibility of a Merlin, or accipiters. Both species of nuthatch often enliven the walk. Large numbers of American Robins spend the winter here.

Dress according to the weather, bring your binoculars, snacks if you think you need them, and lots of enthusiasm. Washrooms are not available.

Registration is required. Contact David to register.  Non members are welcome but they will need to sign an insurance waiver.

This outing is predicated on COVID restrictions not becoming more dire. We will at all times be guided by current guidelines related to the pandemic.
