Registration is encouraged, but not required. Feel free to drop by--and it would be great to know that you are coming!

The songbirds are nesting and soon all five "voices" of the birds will be on full display. The pair of barred owls who had made their presence so clear to us in February and March were not displaying themselves last month--but the shapes of the bird language that we saw on our maps suggest they may still be in the area. Let's see what all our eyes and ears pick up this time, and see what we can learn about the local raptors. Come join us as we share the mysteries and discoveries together.

What should I bring?

Bring what you need to be comfortable sitting still, outside on the ground for an extended period of time—perhaps as long as an hour. You will also need something to take notes on. You do not need to have binoculars, but there is no harm in bringing a pair if you would like. Here are a few recommended and optional items to bring:

Recommended:

Note pad & pencil
Ground cloth, blanket or camp-chair
Sun protection
Poncho if it is raining

Optional:
Water bottle
Snack
Binoculars

Sign me up!
