This is the first of three winter months for bird census, and it is the signature time for the Christmas Bird Count. This specific date and Minto-Brown bird walk is a day of effort to canvas the species just prior to the Count day, this year to be held on Saturday, December 18.
Expect a wide variety of resident and wintering migrant species.
Meet at 8:00 AM at parking lot #3 (the last parking lot in the park). Dress for the weather and bring snacks and water to keep energized. Wear appropriate footwear for uneven trails and plan for considerable walking. We will plan to finish by Noon.
Directions: From River Road South, turn west at the signal at Minto Island Road and proceed to the last parking lot.
