Morning Migration Bird Walk

Take a leisurely hike to see and hear the numerous bird species that migrate through central Pennsylvania every spring and fall. Shaver’s Creek naturalists Doug Wentzel and Joshua Potter will help participants identify the songs, calls, and field marks of species, from hawks and eagles to thrushes and woodpeckers. Bring a good pair of hiking boots, binoculars, any guidebooks you have, and an inquisitive mind! Migration Morning Bird Walks are open to birders of all experience levels. Some binoculars are available to borrow. 

Fall is a great time to study those confusing fall warblers and flycatchers using visual identification!

Registration for bird walks is appreciated but not necessary. We will meet in front of Shaver’s Creek. 

Participants are asked to take their temperature and do a self-health assessment prior to the group. Upon arrival, participants will sign in and attest to their good health. Masking is not required on the trails, but is required when entering any Shaver’s Creek facility.
