Bird Walk at the Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary: Fall Migration and Exploration - Saturday September 17 at 2:00 p.m (Rain Date :Sunday, September 18)
A walk around the Harcourt Nyquist Sanctuary is always nice and at this time of year many birds are already well into their fall migration. And there are many juveniles and varying plumages to study and breeding plumage fades to winter. We will leave options open to explore whatever critters we encounter from a respectful distance. Mud can always be an issue here so dress appropriately and bring binoculars, water and a snack. There will probably be at least a few miles of walking involved.
Participants should be comfortable walking for an extended period of time and should bring bug/tick repellent, water and binoculars (optional) and should wear comfortable walking shoes. This program is appropriate for older children and features potentially muddy, bumpy ground but no steep inclines .
Chrissy Guarino has been birding for about 20 years and stumbled upon a rare Sedge Wren in the sanctuary. She is also a high school science teacher and all around nature lover who travels with her bike whenever possible.
