Bird Song Walks

Every April & May

There may be no greater joy in birding than listening to the dawn chorus of birdsong on a crisp spring morning. Each spring, Portland Audubon provides free Bird Song Walks every weekday in April and May led by local experts.

Join other birders, from young to old, beginner to expert, on these fun, guided walks through Portland’s best songbird habitat. Each location will have a weekly repeating walk so that participants can develop their birding by ear progressively with the arrival of new birds.

Most Bird Song Walks begin at 7 a.m. and end at 9 a.m. You may leave whenever you like. Bring binoculars and a field guide, if you have them. Be sure to dress properly for the weather as spring mornings can be surprisingly chilly.
