Bird Walk

10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
West Slope Community Library

Description

As part of our summer reading for adults, Thea Hart will help you explore new paths and get started observing and identifying local birds by sight and by sound on this walk that begins and ends in the adult nonfiction area at West Slope Library. See map (coming soon) for the path that we will take through Raleigh Park and back to the library. Some possible species that we may expect to see include:

  • American Crow
  • American Robin
  • Anna's Hummingbird
  • Bewick's Wren
  • Black-Capped Chickadee
  • Brown Creeper
  • Dark-Eyed Junco
  • Downy Woodpecker
  • Lesser Goldfinch
  • Northern Flicker
  • Song Sparrow
  • Varied Thrush

Bring your own binoculars if you have them but please don't let that be a barrier to joining us. There is good birding to be had without! You may also wish to download the Merlin App to your smartphone, if you have one. More info at https://merlin.allaboutbirds.o...

What to expect:

  • 0.34 mile walk one way (0.75 miles total)
  • Wear good walking shoes
  • This event will happen rain or shine, so we recommend dressing in layers and bringing a rain coat or umbrella.
  • Families are welcome

All participants must assume responsibility for their own actions and safety, exercise sound judgment, be prepared, and make their own determination on whether or not they participate based on their own assessment of their own abilities, the current weather, and the current trail conditions. Please note that the path includes some steep sections, particularly the portion parallel to SW 78th heading down into the park. For accommodation requests, please contact Thea Hart.
