Field Trip: Birding by Ear at Tryon Creek State Natural Area with Brodie Cass Talbott *FULL*

By mid-May, most of our summer migrants are back, and are singing away as they try to claim territory. We’ll listen for the songs and calls of Black-headed Grosbeak, Wilson’s Warbler, and Black-throated Gray Warbler. We’ll keep an eye out for one of the several owls that nest in the park.

Please join us for the companion class to this field trip:

  • May 10, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Notes on accessibility: The trip will feature hiking across uneven terrain, on trails that are a mixture of paved, gravel, and packed dirt tread. Trails are wide in most places, but narrow at points, and do include some mild inclines. Bathrooms are available at the visitor center. Most hiking will be in forest, with limited sun exposure. Our trip will meet at the visitor center, in the main parking lot, accessed by Terwilliger Blvd. The site is not easily accessed by mass transit; the nearest bus stop is the 39 stop serving Lewis & Clark, one mile away.

Practice your birding by ear skills in forested habitat.

Hone your ear birding with this field trip to one of our best urban forests. This field trip is the companion trip to the Intermediate Birding By Ear: Forests class.
