DOAS will once again offer a Birding By Ear (BBE) event at the scenic Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park in the Town of Westford on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 8:30 AM to unlock the secrets of bird ID through birdsong. We will enjoy an educational session in the Sunset Pavilion, followed by a hike, a “Bruncheon” in the pavilion and an additional hike for more species. Event Pre-Registration is required. Please contact Becky Gretton at 607-547-5648.
THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY AT CAPACITY – WE ARE STARTING A WAITING LIST IN CASE THERE ARE ANY CANCELLATIONS.
It’s spring already, raptors have been migrating north for a month, and our smaller bird friends are arriving daily. Are you a birder who has marveled at the magic of birdsong? Experienced birders anticipate revisiting favorite habitats, using identification skills that have been honed over time. Many of these birders are happy to reach out with a willingness to teach interested, less experienced birders. Please consider joining us for Birding By Ear!
DOAS will once again offer a Birding By Ear (BBE) event at the scenic Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park in the Town of Westford on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 8:30 AM till Noon to unlock the secrets of bird ID through birdsong. We will enjoy an educational session in the Sunset Pavilion, followed by a hike, a delicious “Bruncheon”
in the pavilion and an additional hike for those who can stay longer. A raffle will be available as well. There is a variety of habitats at this park, with a number of species possible. PLEASE NOTE: For returning participants who wish to go birding upon arrival, we will have that option available to you when you register!
The cost, pre-paid, for the BBE is $25.00 for an adult 18 and over, and $15.00 for children 12-17 who are accompanied by an adult. This cost is non-refundable, as the food is pre-ordered. The event is limited in size, and registration will be on a first-come basis. Bruncheon includes muffin varieties, cheese-hash brown casserole, sausage-hash brown casserole, tossed salad, chicken/grape salad with croissants, coffee, tea and water. If the weather makes hiking impossible, we will have expanded educational sessions and bruncheon, and enjoy each other’s company! (We haven’t been rained out yet.)
You can pay registration fee upon form submission here, via PayPal, or with a check which must be mailed to DOAS (must be received by May 25). You may contact Becky Gretton at 607-547- 5648 for more information. If the event is full, you will be notified and your payment/check will be refunded or returned with our thanks.
Please come to meet new people or reunite with friends from the past, and to learn more about our beautiful spring birds! We look forward to seeing you.
Becky Gretton, Co-President
