OUTSIDE THE CITY
Spring Birding Exploration at the Rookery
April 28, 2013
What are those huge nests weighing down tall tree tops? This group of great blue herons nests make up a rookery. Most of the time, these beautiful birds are well camouflaged as they wade through wetlands fishing with their long beaks for frogs, fish and even crayfish. The rookery gives a different view of great blue herons as they perch majestically and take flight with their 6-foot wingspans. Come learn more about these amazing birds! Other species we may see include wood duck, brown creeper, belted kingfisher, and five species of woodpecker. Directions to the meeting location and additional information are included in a link in the registration confirmation email.
Pre-registration required. Online registration available.
