Birding Walk: Bring your binoculars and bird book! At 3 Creek Ranch ~ South Park Feed Grounds
Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM 
Location: Meet at the Nature Center at 9:00 AM
Difficulty: Easy

Although the birding season is drawing to a close, and our local songbirds are preparing for the great migration...please join me for a very casual morning bird walk along the South Park levee. We will walk about 2 miles on a maintained two-track road through cottonwood and willow forest and adjacent to the Snake River - a fabulous place to see birds... The very first step to enjoying and appreciating birds is simply to increase our awareness of them. We’ll focus our time detecting the most common birds in the area, discuss identification skills, and some of the best places to watch birds. I encourage all of the ‘beginner birders’ out there to join us, as my goal is simply to help you‘See more birds’...

Bring: Binoculars and a Bird book! Water bottle, warm layer, sunscreen. 
Notes: Note the early start, we will leave promptly! I have three pair of binoculars to loan for the morning. Please stop by or give me a call if I can answer any questions.
