Mid-Spring Birding and Nature Walk along the North Reservoir with Winchester Trails
Monday, May 17, 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Leaders: Julia Osborne, Tinie Noordzij, Winchester Trails Guides
We will walk along the trails on the west side of the North Reservoir, looking for returning migrant birds, such as warblers, orioles, and towhees. We’ll also keep an eye out for resident species such as red-breasted and white-breasted nuthatches and pileated woodpeckers. We'll pay particular attention to the habitats and plant communities that attract the various kinds of birds.
This walk is appropriate for beginning birders. Please bring binoculars if you have them.
We’ll meet at the north end of the North Reservoir, next to the tennis courts across from 15 Appalachian Road. Parking is available along Hillcrest and Appalachian Roads, off Highland Avenue in Winchester. Steady rain or stormy wind cancels.
Please note that space is strictly limited, and pre-registration will be required for all of our 2021 group events (no on-site registrations will be permitted).
IMPORTANT: PLEASE DO NOT BE A NO-SHOW!!! Our free offerings are frequently waitlisted, so if you cannot attend, PLEASE CONTACT US so we can give your spot to another person who wants to participate.
