Spring Bird Walk @ Glen Providence Park - Kirk Lane entrance
May 6 @ 7:30 am – 9:30 am

Meet at the Kirk Lane entrance. Rain or shine!

Join us for a bird walk in Glen Providence Park during spring migration! We’ll look for warblers and all sorts of other migrants, and see if we can add to the 127 species on the park’s bird list. This walk will be led by Tom Bush – he’s a lifelong birder, an officer of the Birding Club of Delaware County, and he has led bird walks at Smedley Park and John Heinz NWR. Tom has been on several of our walks – we are delighted that he will be leading this one!

 

Logistics:

  • * Please note the location- we are starting at the Upper Providence entrance at Third Street and Kirk Lane. *
  • Estimated distance: 1-1.5 miles
  • Estimated time: 2 hours
  • Rain or shine
  • Free!
  • Be prepared for steep hills, and uneven (possibly wet) terrain: wear your hiking shoes, bring a hiking pole if you use one… and of course binoculars and your favorite bird book or app!
