Birding with Mike

Willisbrook Preserve | Thu, May 16, 2019, 8:00am - 10:30am

Preserve Manager and expert birder Mike Coll guides spring bird walks every Thursday morning.

All are welcome to join Mike to search for warblers, orioles, flycatchers, kingbirds, bluebirds, raptors, and more. These migratory and nesting birds are sustained by healthy ecosystems that provide ample food, water, and shelter to survive a challenging world.

We’ll visit a new location each week, exploring woodlands, meadows, and streams managed by Natural Lands or our partners and friends.

Willisbrook Preserve is a mix of woods and grassland meadows, including just over 20 acres of a rare ecosystem known as the Sugartown Serpentine Barrens. These barrens support a variety of plant species, many of which are threatened or endangered. In 2010, the barrens were designated as a Wild Plant Sanctuary by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Birders of all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome.

Dress for the season and wear sturdy shoes.

Be prepared to walk a few miles on uneven terrain.

Bring water bottle and binoculars.

Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
