Bird Walks

Second Saturday Bird Walks 

Forsyth Audubon has a long tradition of holding bird walks open both to members and the public on the second Saturday of every month, clouds or shine and perhaps even with a little precipitation. Each month, the walk is held at a different park or greenway around Forsyth County. We also like to check out the ducks and shorebirds that visit the Archie Elledge Waste Water Treatment Plant. Walks begin at 8 a.m., April through October, and at 9 a.m., November through March. Participation is free.

Being able to identify all of the birds by sight or sound is not required. Quite the opposite, this is a great opportunity for the beginning and intermediate birder to learn more about the birds in our area and to improve their identification skills. More experienced birders offer tips about bird watching and identification. Most of all, we are out there to have fun exploring our local natural habitats with people who share our interests. Families and young children who like birds are welcome. Bring binoculars, if you have them, but we also have a couple pair that are just the right size for young naturalists.

July 8 Bird Walk

On July 8, Rob Rogers and 20 other birders braved the heat at Civitan Park for the July Second Saturday Bird Walk

They had around 36 species including; Willow Flycatcher, Warbling Vireo and several Orchard Orioles. Overall it was a great walk despite the heat, thank you to everyone who helped and participated.

Our next Saturday walk will be on August 12 at Archie Elledge Wast Water Treatment Plant. We will meet in the parking lot before the main gate and carpool into the facility at 8 a.m. Walk Leader: Chuck Thompson 

Weekday Bird Walks 

Our Saturday walks have proved so popular, we will try something new beginning in September - a second walk on a weekday. So, it you are retired, work at home, work on weekends or just want to get out on a beautiful day before going to work, come on out.

 

On Monday, July 31 we did not have an official leader for the Washington Park Monday Bird Walk. 

The next Monday walk will be on August 27 at the Bethabara Lower Trail. This is a great place to look for some of our summer residents. Walk Leader: David Disher

See our Calendar, for a complete list of our scheduled walks.
