Mariton: Tuesday Bird Walks!

April 30, 2012

by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager

Beginning this week (May 1), Mariton will be leading bird walks on Tuesday mornings until the end of the month.  We will start at Mariton this Tuesday, and then visit different natural areas in the following weeks.  There are a number of spring migrants returning.  This week will be a tune up for our ears (as we listen to bird songs) and our necks (as we look up into the tree tops).  Bring binoculars, or borrow a pair of ours. 

This Tuesday, we will start at the Nature Center at 8:00 a.m.  On following weeks, we will meet at 7:30 a.m. here, and then carpool to the different locations.  We welcome all levels of birders.  While we love to bird, this group also stops to smell the flowers (literally).  We are often distracted by wildflowers, butterflies, fungi and other wonders of nature.  Please contact me if you plan to attend, so we can plan the carpools.
