Birding in fall, winter, and early spring is great for exercising your birding skills, learning some non-breeding plumages, and observing foraging behaviors of both migratory and resident species. We are often rewarded with nuthatches, woodpeckers, and other songbirds in better view in the absence of summer's foliage, as well as tracks in the frost and the soothing quiet of crisp mornings. Designed for all birders from novices to experts, we focus on birding skills, fun, and being in tune with nature. Every outing is a treasure hunt for birds and their wild neighbors!
Join naturalist Rebecca Weiss on the first Tuesday of the month from October through April and open yourself to a new passion! Bring your binoculars and field guides (or borrow ours) and dress warmly: coat, gloves, hat, appropriate footwear especially when the snow's on the ground.
WHAT TO BRING: Bring binoculars and bird field guide books. ACES has some binoculars to lend. Wear comfortable shoes for walking and appropriate layers for the temperatures. Bring snack and water if you need it for this short outing.
HOW TO GET THERE: Please walk, bike, bus, carpool, or ski to ACES sites whenever possible (yes, you really could cross-country ski to ACES when there is enough snow). Parking at all sites is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet!
