Have you heard the word? Birds are flying north for the breeding season! Spring is a wonderful time of year to learn all about birds, especially waterfowl with their beautiful breeding plumage, species variety, and easy observation access. If you are looking for a fun family activity during April vacation or are a new birder eager to learn more, join biology intern, Allie Pesano, as she introduces you to the world of waterfowl watching!
During this 1.5 hour program, we’ll introduce guests to binocular use, waterfowl anatomy (and adaptations), and what species use the refuge. We’ll then walk over to the Salt Pannes Wildlife Observation Area to learn about and observe ducks in beautiful breeding plumage. Some spotting scopes and binoculars will be provided. Bring binoculars and bird books if you have them. Please dress appropriately for this outside activity. Event limited to 15 participants. If children are attending, parents must remain with them. Participants should meet Allie on the refuge at Parking Lot 3. Rain date is April 18th at 10a.m. Preregistration is required.
