Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society will host a morning bird walk starting at 8am on June 17 in conjunction with Exploration Days at Hanford Mills. Veteran birders Suzanne Gaynor and Kathryn Davino will co-lead the walk around the Hanford Mills property. Beginners and experienced birders alike are welcome to join in. The walk covers fairly level terrain and will last about 90 minutes. The trail traverses a
variety of surfaces: grass, gravel, and boardwalk, and it includes an occasional step up/down and a few gentle slopes. The total distance traveled is about .5 miles. There are no rest areas along the route, but there are benches near the pond, and picnic tables at the parking lot. The parking lot has plenty of room to accommodate vans. Accessible bathrooms are available.
Participants should meet in the big event parking lot and bring binoculars, sturdy shoes, insect repellent, water, and curiosity about birds! Upon return to the parking lot, participants will be invited to drive a short distance to see a Bald Eagle nest that currently has a pair of adults caring for one or more fledglings.
This is a free program and pre-registration is appreciated as it allows leaders to contact participants if there is an issue with the weather. Pre-register using the form below and contact Kathryn Davino at (607-746-7396) with any questions.
