About the Event
By mid May, the majority of both our resident bird species and our summer breeding species have chosen their territories and nesting sites and are busy raising their families. We'll identify these birds by sight and sound, while keeping an eye (and ear) out for migrants that are still on their way north. This bird-themed walk will have a unique focus on the importance of birds in Northeastern native folklore and their names in Munsee, Mohican, and other Algonquian languages. Don't forget a pair of binoculars and comfortable footwear!
Advance registration for this event is required. Participants are required to wear a mask, please do not attend if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to someone with COVID.
