Pheasant Branch Birdwalk – May 4

Pheasant Branch Birdwalk 5/4 @ 6:30 AM

The creek corridor at the Pheasant Branch Conservancy in Middleton is an important stopover sites for migrating birds. David La Puma will lead families on a walk through the creek corridor where we’ll listen and look for birds that have settled down to rest and eat. This will be a leisurely stroll on a paved path (stroller-accessible). Early spring is typically very cool in the early morning, but warms quickly as the morning progresses, so please check the forecast and dress in layers so you keep comfortable. If you have binoculars please bring them, and make sure to bring a drink and snack (especially for any little ones) as we’ll be walking for 2-3 hours (you can drop out at any point as needed).David La Puma, father of Corinna Wren and Rosa Lark (in the Starflower classroom), is an ornithologist who studies nocturnal migration using weather radar. When not analyzing radar on his computer, he’s most often outside trying to understand how what he sees on the radar relates to the birds he sees on the ground and in the sky.

Parking is on Park Street, just off of Park Lawn, in Middleton. See the map at this link: http://goo.gl/maps/IaJwj
