MIGRATION BIRDWALKS continue on Sunday mornings starting April 29th through May 20th, at 8 a.m., weather permitting (hard rain cancels the walk). We will meet at Area 7-8 parking lot via the Wil-o-way-Grant entry road from Lake Drive at the northern portion of the park. All levels of birding expertise are welcome. Binoculars and comfy shoes/boots suggested. A pocket guide or phone App such as Sibley’s, National Geographic or I-Bird are helpful ID tools. We will likely head to Warnimont as well. We expect the species counts to continue to increase over the next two to three weeks, as migrants from South and Central America are beginning their big push through to breeding grounds here and in the Canadian boreal forest.
