I Bird NY: BIRDS AND BREAKFAST

Join members of the Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club as they welcome the arrival of spring with an early morning bird walk. With the varied habitats at Five Rivers you can expect to see and hear many resident and migrant species, including warblers, thrushes, vireos, and orioles, along with a few waterfowl and herons. Typical spring survey results in about 70 species. The earliest party will meet in the parking lot at 6:00 AM. Additional groups will leave at 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM. You may join one of these groups or go out on your own as we try to find as many species as possible. We’ll rally at the new visitor center at 10:30 AM for coffee, doughnuts, bagels, fresh fruit, and a list compilation. The breakfast is free, but donations are welcomed.

BEGINNING BIRDING
Binoculars, birding apps, and books are the tools of the trade for bird watching. We will start inside the visitor center and discuss how to utilize these helpful aids in identifying birds. We will then head outside to practice our newfound knowledge by identifying local birds by sight and sound. Bring binoculars if you have them.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
