Fall Bird Walk with the Audubon Society!
October 1 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
The birds are heading south! Fortunately for us, many of these fall migrants will stop in our area for a rest and refuel. If you’d like to see some of these beautiful birds, join us for a bird walk in September and October! Each walk is led by a local expert. Bird walks are appropriate for all ages and all skill levels. (Seriously, there is no pressure to know anything about birds! We can give you some tips, or you can just walk along with us and appreciate us appreciating the birds.) We even have 5 pairs of loaner binoculars! If you have questions about accessibility, please email us at [email protected]. Here is the complete schedule:
Sunday, September 10 – 8:00 a.m. – Ewing Park (1001 Ethell Parkway, Bloomington)
Sunday, September 17 – 8:00 a.m. – Ewing Park (1001 Ethell Parkway, Bloomington)
Sunday, September 24 – 8:00 a.m. – Ewing Park (1001 Ethell Parkway, Bloomington)
Saturday, September 30- 8:00 a.m. – Hidden Creek Park (100 W. Sycamore, Normal)
Sunday, October 1 – 8:00 a.m. – Fraker Farm (2226 County Road 375 N, Carlock) – look for the Parklands Foundation sign and proceed down the lane past the gate
Saturday, October 7 – 8:00 a.m. – Hidden Creek Park (100 W. Sycamore, Normal)
Sunday, October 15 – 8:00 a.m. – Ewing Park (1001 Ethell Parkway, Bloomington)
Both of these parks are great birding spots with excellent views. Warblers, thrushes, sparrows, finches, raptors, and more are all seen at these locations. Ewing is a larger park and has been designated an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society. Hidden Creek is smaller and is fully accessible for those with mobility devices. It’s also a smaller park with great birding not too far from your parked car. There are also benches throughout, so it’s a great birding spot for those who need to take breaks.
