Event Details

For young birders and their families, join Master Birders Sarah and Angela for a 2.4-mile flat stroll around Lake Ladora and Lake Mary loop trails in search of resident birds and migrants. We hope to find fall sparrows, corvids, raptors, and a variety of ducks and other waterfowl. Come prepared with binoculars, water, snacks, sun protection, clothing layers, and smiles. Plan to participate in a quiet "sit spot" observation activity. Study up on your duck calls (and imitations) and come with a (clean) bird or duck joke if you'd like to share!  More details to come for registered participants a few days before the day of the trip.
