As we move toward fall, juveniles songbirds and juvenile raptors have fledged and are learning to forage and hunt on their own. They look grown up, but most are not yet as adept--or as wise--as their parents. Come join us to explore how the birds are adjusting to the end of summer and preparing for migration season.

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!
