Bird Walk with Linda White

Look! Listen! Learn!

On Saturday, October 8, at 10am meet us at the Play Garden for a walk around Hudson Crossing Park to observe colorful and intriguing birds both large and small. We'll be looking for all types of feathered friends, listening to their unique songs and calls, and learning some basic identification, habitat preferences, favorite foods, and fun facts. Bring binoculars if you have them and wear appropriate footwear for walking.
