All of our migrant forest birds should have arrived and will be filling the forest with their songs. We will cover two to three miles of trails in two hours (at a birder’s pace), on a clean dirt path with only a couple of small hills. Bring binoculars and footgear to match the weather. Tennis shoes work if it’s dry; otherwise dress for rain. Bring binoculars.
We should find grosbeaks, flycatchers, Swainson’s Thrushes, woodpeckers, and warblers plus others. The forest is dominated by Douglas Fir of various ages with patches of alder and maple. There also are open brushlands which attract many bird species for their berries and bugs.
The walk is limited to 12 people. Sign up with Bob Wadsworth at RWADSRK@nullGmail.Com
Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the smaller LBA parking lot (with the tennis courts and picnic shelter) at the end of Amherst Street, off Morse-Merriman, off Boulevard.
