Beginning Birder Outing at Crown Point State Historic Site

Beginning Birder Outing at Crown Point State Historic Site

Beginner Birder Outing, participants limited to 10 persons

Thursday May 20th, 8am, meet outside museum at benches

Join John Loz, President of Southern Adirondack Audubon, for a low impact, beginner bird outing looking for spring migrants along the trails of Crown Point Historic Site and shoreline of Lake Champlain. John will share tips on using your binoculars to locate and identify birds, as well as how to choose a hard copy or smart phone bird field guide that will work for you. The group will collectively work together to identify resident and spring migrant songbirds and waterfowl they come across by sight and song, and will end the walk by visiting the bird banding station to learn about the scientific significance of capturing, banding, and releasing birds.

Please bring your binoculars, but binoculars are available upon request.  A checklist will be furnished to help record birds seen and write down field marks of the birds to help identify them.  Please wear sturdy, weatherproof boots as parts of the trail may be soggy.  Predicted thunderstorms will cancel the outing.  Pre-register at lisa.polay@parks.ny.gov.
